Are you a kid that’s ready to inspire others? Know a kid who loves being on stage and has something inspirational to share?TEDxKids@BC 2016 conference’s theme is regenerate. Every year, youth of all ages are brought together to inspire their peers to reach or surpass their own potential, in ways they didn’t know was possible. The speakers that will be heard at TedxKids@BC will share their ideas and stories that will inspire and educate others.
Events like TEDxKids@BC renew the ideology that there’s always an opportunity to discover something new. TED stands for Technology, Education, Design. Adding youth to the mix creates opportunities to inspire others in new ways that are relevant to today’s generations. Communities are shown new ways to change their perspective of looking at the world by learning from their youth.
When applying to be a speaker for the 2016 TEDxKids@BC conference just be yourself. Show us how you can inspire others and speak to the idea of regenerate. Tell us in your own words what you have to share with the audience.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxKids@BC, where x = independently organized TED event.
At our TEDxKids@BC event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
