From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the event is a collaboration of efforts by local high school students from Central Academy, Michigan Islamic Academy, Huron, Pioneer, Skyline, Community, Greenhills and Washtenaw International.
As speakers and organizers, the students will give TED Talks on topics they are passionate about, ranging from sexism and education to racism and artificial intelligence. At the event, students will also be able to network with each other so as to further spread their voices among their peers.
Tickets range from $5 (for students) to $30 (families) and can be bought online through the 2019 TEDxYouth website. Attendees will also be eligible for raffle prizes including $50 gift cards to Chop House and Ann Arbor Art Center, art from Motawi Tileworks, three board games from Vault of Midnight, a Zoey & Joey prize basket as well as two Planet Rocks starter packs.
