Call for Submissions: TEDx at SUU

Published: March 07, 2013 | Category: Academics

SUU’s honor students are searching for dynamic presenters with extraordinary ideas among the University’s faculty, students, staff and alumni for the TEDxSUU event they will host on campus, slated for March 27.

A local, independent event based on and licensed by TED (technology, entertainment and design), TEDx events provide a platform for anybody to share their ideas and expertise with the community and the world.

Malinda Street, a senior university studies major and event coordinator for TEDxSUU said, “TED topics are incredibly varied. There are TED talks about how music and math connect, how to overcome personal difficulties, or even experiences with mental illnesses or physical disabilities. We want to hear what people are passionate about.”

Event organizers for TEDxSUU are looking for any and all ideas.

Street went on to say, “This is a chance to disseminate all the great ideas and passions that students, faculty, staff and alumni have to the rest of campus.”

To share your thoughts with the SUU community and beyond, submit a 90-second video explaining what you plan to speak about to by noon on Monday, March 11. Be sure your video submission includes your name, class standing and/or position at SUU, and the name of your presentation.
