We invite you to become inspired Trailblazers who will and experience TEDxYouth@Dayton on March 1, 2019 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Held in the historic Dayton Masonic Center, this event will include dynamic young speakers with ideas worth sharing; developing entertainers with unique sounds; and active participation throughout the day.

  • 250 seats are reserved for those who will be 14 to 19 years old in 2018. Each of those attendees may reserve a seat for an accompanying adult, if desired.
  • 100 seats are available for adults who are not connected to a specific youthful attendee but wish to attend a live TEDx conference.

All applicants will be selected on a rolling, person-by-person basis. Most decisions will be made by February 22nd or until space is filled. A $10 cash donation is suggested for attendance; these donations will be collected on the day of the event. Light snacks will be provided throughout the event. All youth must fill out and bring a Medical Emergency Form (if under 18, it must be signed by a legal guardian).
