Langley students have a chance to make their mark at the next TEDxVancouver taking place at Rogers Arena on Saturday, Nov. 14.

This year’s theme is ID, a concept that encourages self-discovery, explores consciousness, perceptions and expectations, and what it means to be your true self. Who are we? Who am I? Who will I be?

The goal of the youth initiative is to challenge youth to go beyond their comfort zones to create new possibilities, and identify local shining stars who may have the makings of a future TEDxVancouver speaker.

To enter, at tedxvancouver.com, you must be between the ages of 8 and 18 years, and answer one of these two questions: ‘Who Am I?’ What five words do you think most describe you? And why? Or ‘Who Would I like to be?’ Who inspires you and why?

The submission deadline has been extended. All entries must be received by 9 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 9.

The submission must be a video (min. 30 seconds; max 2 minutes) via link to YouTube/Vimeo account or file upload of no more than 3MB in an AVI, MOV, or MP4 format.

One winner will be selected by a panel of judges based on their creativity, originality and presentation on Tuesday, Nov. 10.
