TEDxTraverseCity Seeking Pitches For 2018 Event

By Beth Milligan | Dec. 1, 2017

TEDxTraverseCity is seeking pitches for its third annual Pitch Night on February 28.

Four winners from Pitch Night will be selected to fill four six-minute speaking slots at the main 2018 TEDxTraverse City event on May 16. Applicants of all ages are encouraged to share "an idea worth spreading" in a three-minute pitch at Pitch Night, something that "would make us curious about hearing a full six-minute talk," according to event organizers. All pitches must resonate with the 2018 theme “Awake and Aware.”

The deadline to submit applications is January 11. To apply online, click here. Applicants are committing to show up in person on Pitch Night to deliver their pitches. Doors for the free Pitch Night event open at 5pm at Milliken Auditorium. Event attendees will have the opportunity to weigh in on their favorite speakers on ballot forms that will be taken into account along with the judge panel’s evaluation.
