TEDxRedmond 2012: Your Place in the Puzzle
Bring your ideas.
In 2010, we organized the first TEDxRedmond conference to focus on “Power to the Students,” highlighting the unique inspiration, activism, and drive of young people—both on-stage and in the audience. That first year, we received tremendous media coverage, corporate support, and over 700 attendees from all over the Pacific Northwest. High school students and children as young as seven sat rapt in the audience, learning from their peers and contributing to the discussion around youth voice and accomplishment.
In 2011, we continued the success we saw in 2010 with the “Spark in All of Us”-themed conference. Almost 900 people registered for the event, breaking our previous year’s already unimaginable scale. Speakers making an impact on both global and local stages shared their stories; ultimately, our work created an opportunity for a diverse group of young adults to share, learn, and inspire.
This year, our theme is “Your Place in the Puzzle.”
- Every single speaker at TEDxRedmond is under 20. They come from a range of different backgrounds, with one thing in common: ideas worth spreading.
- The planning committee is under 20, with speaker selection, event planning, and pre-conference awareness all done by youth. Adults help us out with sponsor relations, but the conference decisions are made by young people.
- The audience is comprised majorly of youth, with some adults (parents, educators, business and civic leaders) invited to attend as well. Our audience is diverse and we are dedicated to recruiting new attendees from underserved communities.
