About the Event
Young people will gather to explore the theme: “Worlds Imagined.” They’ll hear mind-shifting stories and big ideas in a broad array of topics that impact the world today. They’ll envision new scenarios for our future, and think through how they can contribute to its creation.
For high school students engaged in their community, TEDxYouth@RVA will be a unique experience with interesting talks from incredible people. In addition to free food, great music, and entertainment, students will participate in an evening of sharing ideas on issues that matter to them. These ideas will inspire positive change that will lead to meaningful transformations for the students and the communities around them.
About the Organizers
TEDxRVA is thrilled to present the youth curators of TEDxYouth@RVA: Emily & Paige Lawson.
They are seniors and students of James River High School’s Leadership and International Relations Specialty Center Class of 2015. This will be the first time they have ever worked with TED, and they could not be more excited! In Emily’s free time, she loves to work at Passages Adventure Camp, and is an avid mountain-biker. Paige spends her free time riding with the Forest View Volunteer Rescue Squad as an EMT-B.
