Dawn is the time that marks the beginning of the twilight before sunrise. In our minds, it symbolizes the hope and innovation. We have invited six speakers from different field to introduce some new and meaningful conceptions to our high school students. We hope that those talks will help us expand our horizon and get some inspirations from them. And also, since this is our first event, we would also to use this name to encourage ourselves to have the courage to break the rule and introduce TEDxYouth, a new form of relatively free speech, to our classmates and our school.
