Students Encouraged to Share Stories at TEDxUMaine

The Maine Journal, a student-run, online publication at the University of Maine, will sponsor TEDxUMaine on April 5. The local TED-like event aims to share the experiences of exceptional UMaine students through their own voices. The event will include six to eight student speakers as well as selected TED videos from past TED talks and live musical entertainment. The four-hour event will include an hour-long intermission in which audience members and speakers can eat lunch, network and share ideas. TED — Technology, Entertainment and Design — is a nonprofit organization that offers leading innovators a platform for “ideas worth spreading.” The application for student presenters is online. The deadline to apply is March 16.
