We’re no longer accepting registrations. We are thrilled you have decided to register for the second TEDxYouth@Montreal event! We invite motivated youth ages 11-17 to fill out the registration form. The event will take place Saturday, November 16, from 1pm-6pm. As we are a non-profit organization, we endeavor to bring you this conference at the lowest price possible. The cost to participate in the event will be $25. We will endeavor to get back to you within 3 days of receiving your registration. Why does TEDxYouth@Montreal have an registration process to attend? TEDxYouth@Montreal is bound by a license which permits us to use the TEDx brand. TEDxYouth@Montreal is an independent event, licensed by but not run by TED. The conference is entirely volunteer-run and our team devotes literally months of their lives, purely out of passion to create something for the youth community. There are many guidelines as well as recommendations that TED provides to organizers to help create a TED-like experience at TEDx events. Among these, TED encourages prospective TEDx attendees to fill out registration forms in order to showcase their commitment to attending the event. Like our curated speaker program, our participants (audience) are also selected based on a process that takes into account only the answers provided to the questions asked on the application form. It is important to note that our team is not tasked with evaluating individuals, but their applications. We take the time to review all of the registrations and offer admission based primarily on their enthusiasm and the care that they took in filling out the questions on the form. Without any more information than what is provided, this is not a review of people’s background or achievements. Rather it is a measure of desire to attend and engage, as best we can determine from their answers to these simple questions. What is most important is a “spark” we are seeking from youth who are interested. You don’t need to have seen every TED talk or attended any other TEDx events, you may have never heard of our speakers or spent the last year just figuring out how to organize all your activities or dodging your homework – or all of the above! If you would like to join us and bring your energy and passion to this event, please fill out the registration.
