We have a winner!

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

After uploading a 30 second video of themselves explaining their idea, TEDxKingsPark selected 5 talented Finalists to share their idea on the main stage at TEDxYouth@KingsPark – Australia’s largest TEDx event for young people.

The audience voted for the winning idea – Ebony Thompson, who spoke about the impact teachers can make on young people with ADHD. Her idea will be turned into a TEDx talk, and be published on the official TEDx YouTube channel! 

We hope to run this competition again in 2023!
