TEDxYouth@Columbus is back! After a successful inaugural year in 2011, we will once again highlight the youth of Columbus (ages 14-25) and their ideas in short TEDx talks on stage for an inspiring morning revealing a youth view of the “Future Revealed.” In the afternoon, the attendees (“change agents”) in the audience will participate in a workshop on how to develop their own ideas that will inspire the world. COSI will host, once again, on October 3 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.


If you would like to be a presenter (ages 14-25), please complete the nomination form here.


If you would like attend as a “change agent” (ages 14 – 18), please submit an application here. There is a $10/per student registration fee.


If you would like to be a mentor helping with the afternoon workshop, please let us know your interest here.


TEDxYouth@Columbus is a collaborative event of TEDxColumbus and a part of the city’s idUS week. All talks that are presented will be loaded to the gloabl TEDx YouTube channel and featured here on this site. The event is organized by COSI staff and volunteers in collaboration with the organizers of TEDxColumbus.


If you cannot attend TEDxYouth@Columbus but would like to be a part of a TEDxYouth movement, on November 17-18, the international TEDxYouth day will take place, to which all are encouraged to design your own TEDxYouth event. The guidelines for registering a local event to tie into the International Youth Day can be found here, or through this video:
