Is Your Idea TED-worthy?

Cal State East Bay holding EBx Spring 2019 auditions

Cal State East Bay is currently accepting pitches for one of five spots at the upcoming EBx Spring 2019 event.

This is the university’s second TEDx-style event and will be held March 28 at the Hayward campus. Anyone interested in auditioning should submit a two-minute video recording that the EBx selection committee will review prior to candidates auditioning live.

Topics for presentations can include the following:

The big idea: Talks that make one or two solid points

The tech demo: An onstage look at a clever or new invention the speaker helped create

A performance: Music, dance, puppetry or another captivating performance

Artist’s statement: A showcase of art and an explanation of the meaning and process

A scientific dazzle: A presentation about the amazingness of science and discovery

The small idea: Not all ideas are big and this presentation would feature an engaging take on an interesting topic

The issue: Exposes the audience to a problem that they may not otherwise know much about.

Entries are due Jan. 31 and should be submitted through the EBx website.
