We at TEDxYouth@ColumbiaSC love spreading ideas. Just like the TED conference, we bring speakers and performers from all over the world to share with students their experiences, stories, and passions. This year, we’re embracing surprise (our theme) everywhere. We love experimenting, so our conference will be totally different from the way attendees are invited and how we work with speakers, all the way to how the day itself will unite everyone around surprise.
We’re working with awesome, creative companies, like The Half and Half and Riggs Partners, to develop our brand, as well as other cool business who believe in us—like Pennington Law Firm and The Copy Shop—to take our attendees’ experience to the next level.
The schools from which we select students aren’t just in Columbia, either. 40 schools across South Carolina have partnered with us and assigned one teacher—the TEDx Ambassador—to work with the school’s teachers and students to inform them about the event and help select the attendees who go from that school. Those schools are from as far away as Myrtle Beach!
