We invite you to become inspired Trailblazers who will experience TEDxYouth@Dayton, Dream.Dare.Decode. on March 9, 2018. Held in the Student Union at Wright State University, 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 15th or until space is filled. A lunch is available for $10 per person. All youth must fill out and bring a Medical Emergency Form (if under 18, it must be signed by a legal guardian).
