Please read this before submitting:
  1. If you are currently a keynote or corporate speaker, you are not eligible to submit to TEDxEverett unless you have been expressly invited by the organizer. TEDxEverett is seeking people with ideas that matter who already do not have a venue for their ideas. 
  2. If you have been a TED or TEDx speaker within the past 2 years, you are not eligible to apply to submit to TEDxEverett. 
  3. If you do not live within 50 miles of Everett, WA you are not eligible to submit to TEDxEverett unless you have been expressly invited to by the organizer. No unsolicited submissions outside of the 50-mile radius of Everett, WA will be considered. 
  4. If you have presented your talk at any venue, your talk is not eligible. TEDx events are expressly created to provide a venue for talks that have no venue. 
  5. If your talk does not focus on community, on creating vibrant connections, on healing generational trauma, or on a topic that focuses on improving connections within ourselves or within our community, your talk is not eligible for TEDxEverett.
If you feel that your idea is eligible to be considered for TEDxEverett, please send a message through this website. Any messages sent through anyone's private Facebook page will not be considered.
Please include:
Name, email, where you live, a short description of your idea and why you believe it fits into the theme of our 2020 TEDx event. If your submission does not include all of this information, it will not be considered. 
And, this: please understand that this is a small event in a region that has several very large events. For the most part, TEDxEverett speakers will speak on issues important to our community and to our residents as individuals. We have an extremely small crew, so will not be able to respond to all of the inquiries (we get hundreds a month.) If your idea is something we are interested in, we will reach out and contact you. We look at every submission carefully.
Thank you for your interest in being a TEDxEverett speaker. If your talk fit our criteria and seems a good fit for this event, we will be thrilled to talk to you about it. 
Please, only send your submission through our contact form on this page. All other submissions through any other avenue will not be considered.
