If you or someone you know has an idea worth spreading, please let us know! We are eager to learn more about the idea and person and why they would be a good fit for TEDxYouth@SanDiego 2016. Our aim is to curate a collection of interesting presenters and performers sharing their big ideas -- ideas spanning a broad range of topics or interests from people of all ages, experiences and backgrounds.

Please know that the TED talk format is unique. TED talks should be considered "the talk of your life" and should either be a new talk (not something you've given elsewhere) or a new take on something covered before. No talk will be over 18 minutes and most talks will be 3 - 12 minutes. Talk length is determined by the curating team. While we highly encourage talks that push our audience to think from a new perspective, talks should not be religious or political in nature and talks should avoid pseudoscience and any selling or promotion from the stage.

Thank you for submitting only one form per prospective presenter / performer. Additional submissions in no way improve the chance of being selected.
