Nominations for the 2016 TEDxVirginia Tech event are now being accepted

University faculty, staff, students, alumni, and New River Valley community members are encouraged to submit nominations for speakers for the TEDxVirginiaTech event on Nov. 10. Deadline for submissions is April 15. Self-nominations are welcome and encouraged.

In recent years, CALS has had a strong presence at the event and we’d love to keep the college engaged in the program. Students and faculty members from the college that have given talks include Elizabeth Galbreath, David Schmale, Austin Larrowe, and Susan Duncan.

The theme of this year’s event is “Spark.”

To nominate yourself or someone else, visit the nominations website.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
