Amazing Kids! Reporter Adora Svitak to host TEDx Redmond Conference


Past Amazing Kids! of the Month
Jordan Romero and Zach Veach Featured Speakers

Amazing Kids! is proud to announce that one of our very own Amazing Kids! Reporters, 12 year old Adora Svitak, is hosting TEDx Redmond, the first-ever all-kids TEDx conference on September 18 in Redmond, Washington!  And if you’re a kid or teen between the ages of 10 and 15, and will be in the Redmond, Washington area on September 18, you’re invited to attend TEDx Redmond for FREE!

Adora is an internationally-acclaimed author, educator and speaker who has appeared on national news shows like CNN, and national talk shows like Oprah and Good Morning, America.  Adora was the youngest person to speak at the annual TED conference in Long Beach, California (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-bjOJzB7LY)

TED conferences are amazing events that bring together the top luminaries and thinkers of the day to hold talks on a vast array of topics.  You can view every TED speech ever given for FREE on the TED.com website!)

TEDx conferences like the one Adora is organizing are independently organized TED events.  The exciting difference about this TEDx conference is that it will feature only kids and teens as the speakers!

Amazing Kids! has been helping Adora and her mother Joyce line up some of our past Amazing Kids! of the Month to join them as speakers, including now 14 year-old Jordan Romero, the youngest person ever to climb Mt. Everest (check out our interview with Jordan) and 15 year old Zach Veach, Oprah’s spokeskid for her “No Phone Zone” and an Andretti Autosport race car driver (Zach was our July Amazing Kid! of the Month).

Simply visit the TEDx Redmond website and click on “Attend” to register:  http://www.tedxredmond.com

If you can’t attend, not to worry, as you will be able to visit the TEDx Redmond website after the event to watch videos of all of the talks from the event.
