Filling out this form is NOT an official commitment, we are currently just looking to see who's interested. :)
This event will be held on Tuesday, November 27th (date may change within the week) at the Dairy Center for the Performing Arts, and will be a night of 5-minute TED-Talk style presentations for the community, given by Fairview students on topics that interest them (ex., why music education is important, gun violence from a student's perspective, etc.). The audience will be charged a small admission fee and all of the proceeds will go to the I Have a Dream Foundation of Boulder County, an organization that provides low-income children with the support they need to be academically successful.
Each speaker will have the opportunity to make their voices heard at an official Ignite event (great to put on a college application!) AND will receive 5 (!) Knight/choice/NHS Project hours (also applies to Science NHS, if the presentation touches on a scientific topic).
When you audition, we would love for you to have an almost-finished Ignite-format presentation, with 20 slides that auto advance every 15 seconds for a total of 5 minutes. You can find some great examples at http://www.ignitetalks.io/ and though watching TED-Talks at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAuUUnT6oDeKwE6v1NGQxug . Here are some helpful speaking tips below:

We will send a follow-up email with more details by November 2nd!
