TEDxMaumeeValleyCountryDaySchool is a local event organized by Maumee Valley students in which high schoolers share their ideas and passions with a receptive audience. The event features a variety of high school student speakers who engage audience members in thought-provoking discussions of wide-ranging topics relevant to our generation.
WHAT IS TEDx?
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages.
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 TEDxMaumeeValleyCountryDaySchool, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxMaumeeValleyCountryDaySchool 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.
