Neudesic is partnering with TEDx to recognize Southern California teen innovators
IRVINE, Calif., Sept.12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Neudesic is proud to be a sponsor and member of the advisory panel for TEDx OrangeCoast's first annual Teen Challenge. Winners will be recognized during a special presentation at TEDx OrangeCoast Conference 2013 on Saturday, Sept. 21 at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa.
Modeled after its TEDx Challenge, TEDx OrangeCoast created the Teen Challenge to help young innovators of tomorrow start making an impact on the world today.
"We had such great success with our TEDx Challenge last year that we wanted to expand it for this year," said TEDx OrangeCoast Executive Producer Mojdeh Eskandari. "We are making a special effort this session to engage local teens in this challenge."
Entrants were asked to conceive an "Idea Worth Doing" and present a plan to implement it. A panel of judges and advisors from TEDx OrangeCoast, Neudesic, and other sponsoring organizations selected six finalists based on a variety of criteria, including creativity, critical thinking, and viability of the implementation plan.
The finalists will present their ideas on stage to conference attendees, who will then vote.
The finalists' innovative ideas include:
"The future of innovation is in the hands and minds of our youth," said Neudesic founding partner Anthony Ferry. "We all need to do our part to inspire and support their efforts, and give them the chance to realize their dreams."
Each winner will receive a cash prize, mentorship throughout the year, and the exposure and support they need to implement their idea.
