Through maverick thinkers and doers, big-time athletes, entrepreneurs and innovators, humanitarians, and creative performers giving the ‘talk of their life’ around the power of ideas, TEDxMileHigh showcases innovation and leadership in Colorado. To offer a similar platform for area youth, TEDxMileHigh will be holding its second annual TEDxYouth@MileHigh this Friday, April 12, 2013 from 2:00pm to 5:00pm at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House in downtown Denver.
This free event will challenge students between grades 6-12 to think critically about their lives, their communities, and their own big ideas and leadership potential. With approximately 1,800 students from around the Mile High region (including Vail, Salida, and Bennet), this is one of the largest TEDxYouth events in the United States and it will feature an amazing lineup of presenters and performers. TEDxYouth@MileHigh will be focused on innovation, leadership, and technology---an ideal supplement to 21st-century learning in the classroom.
