Here’s the deal in a nutshell:
Young poets should make a bold, creative statement which begins:
“I want to go to a school that…”
Videos should be no more than three minutes. Don’t worry about the video quality – any cheap Flip-type camera is fine. We’re really looking for a compelling spoken word performance.
Poets must be under the age of 18 and from the Philadelphia area. Entries must be sent in the form of a YouTube video link via the entry form at http://tedxphillyed.com/poetry/
Deadline for video submissions: JUNE 5, 2011.
I greatly appreciate whatever you can do to help us promote the talent of our local youth to the huge international TED audience. Thank you!!”
