About The Event

Learn more about our fourth annual TEDxMoreauCatholicHS event! This year, our student speeches are centered around the theme of togetherness.

2021: "Together"

The seats were empty, there was no applause, and there was a strange level of calm for an event that runs on courage, adrenaline, and excitement. The 2020-2021 school year may have brought some changes and challenges, but one thing was constant: our students' desire and passion to share their voices. This year's theme was "Together" to highlight that even after a year apart; learning, socializing, and interacting through computer screens, our Moreau community came together as one.

At our 2021 TEDxMoreauCathoicHS event, nine Moreau Catholic Seniors created, prepared, practiced, and stood up on stage to share their ideas and leave a lasting impact and legacy. The content of their talks ranged from cultural appropriation, to the sexism women face, to concussion prevention and management.

We are incredibly proud of our students for persevering through a challenging year and having the strength and courage to stand on stage and share their voices with the world. Our student's TEDx talks can be found on the TEDx website and Youtube page. If you are interested in supporting our TEDx program, please reach out to Mary McInerney mmcinerney@moreaucatholic.org.

About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.

The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world get help translating their wishes into action; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
