Win your own TEDx talk!

TEDxKings Park, in partnership with Curtin University is looking for West Australians between the ages of 14 – 21 years old to share their big ideas for change.

Your idea could be small and handy, or big and world-changing. Whatever it is, we’re looking for ideas that create change – for people, for the environment, maybe for the world!

Upload a 30 second video explaining your idea. TEDxKings Park Curators will select 5 talented Finalists to share their idea on the main stage at TEDxKings Park Youth.

The audience will vote for the winning idea – just like last year’s winner Ella Rigby, the Winner will be supported by our Curators to turn their 30 Second Idea into a full TEDx talk, and be published on the official TEDx YouTube channel!
