Last year, Austin area youth organized and produced the first ever TEDxYouth@Austin event. It was a wildly successful day that positively impacted hundreds of Austin area youth.


On Sunday, February 16, 2014, central Texas high school and middle school students will come together to hear engaging stories and see inspiring performances and intriguing presentations at the second TEDxYouth@Austin.  TEDxYouth@Austin is operated under license from TED and is independently organized by a steering committee of area youth.


This is a unique opportunity for Central Texas youth to think, discuss, and act with insight about “ideas worth spreading”.  We want students from all area secondary schools to have the opportunity to learn about and consider attending TEDxYouth@Austin.  Over 500 students are already registered and the event is limited to 1,000 students.


What can you do as a Curriculum Council member to help?


1)  Forward this information to your secondary principals and to any teachers who would be passionate about promoting TEDxYouth@Austin to their school’s students.


2)  Ask your principals to promote the TEDxYouth@Austin event through announcements and newsletters. The website for further information and registration is www.tedxyouthaustin.com.


TEDxYouth@Austin is a special event for Central Texas youth.  Thank you for your help in letting your district’s students know about this unique opportunity.
