TEDxYouth@SanDiego 2019 Speaker Application

TEDxYouth@SanDiego is coming to Lincoln High School on March 22, 2019 and we’re looking for 12-15 students to give an 8-10 minute talk. Do you have an idea worth spreading? Some potential topics are listed at the bottom of this page.

If so, you are invited to submit a 3 minute video explaining your idea, why it’s important to you, and why it will be important to the audience – both a local and global audience.

If selected, you will be paired with a speaker coach who will work with you each week over a four month period to craft a compelling narrative to share from the stage.

Applicants must attend a San Diego Unified High School and be 13 years of age or older.
