Application Deadline April 21
Category 1: Individuals with little to no speaking experience apply to become the "People's Choice" Speaker.
Category 2: Individuals with speaking experience.
Our curation team reviews all applications and contacts the applicant with next step details. There will be two winners - One with speaking experience and one without speaking experience. Check out our FAQ page before you apply. Deadline April 21, 2023.
During the TEDxUStreetLive event on May 6, 2023, the applicant presents their idea to the audience and curation team. We are not looking for perfection, just someone with an idea worth sharing. Once the person becomes the People's Choice Speaker, we will formally train them for our main TEDxUStreetWomen event in the Fall. The curation team will provide tip/guidance on how to deliver a great TEDx talk during the event.
Online polling for the speakers will begin after all of the speakers have given their talk. All the talks will be filmed for online voting. The online polling system will remain open for 48 hours after the event on our website. Virtual attendees and in person attendees be able to participate in the People's Choice Speaker Award. We encourage all applicants to share the poll with others in their network.
The winner will be announced via social media links within 72 hours after the event ends. The winner will become the People's Choice Speaker for the next TEDxUStreetWomen event. This is a guaranteed spot. The winner will not need to apply again to be a speaker.
