2019 Student Speaker Competition

Have you ever wanted to give your own TED talk? Do you have an idea worth spreading? Now is your chance. Every year at TEDxUniversityofStAndrews, we invite two students to speak at our conference and inspire our audience. Apply now and you could be one of them!

HOW IT WORKS

The theme for our 2019 conference is BUILDING BRIDGES, so apply here and tell us how your talk would embody our theme. We will go through all applications and invite a number of candidates to interview with us. Then, we'll invite our final shortlist to speak at our launch party in February, where the audience will vote and choose the final two who will each give a talk at our conference in April 2019. 

APPLICATIONS WILL BE OPEN FROM MIDDAY ON 19TH JANUARY UNTIL MIDNIGHT 31st JANUARY 2019
