TEDx events may be built around speakers, but so much of the excitement, sharing, and energy comes from the audience. Within the confines of TEDx rules, each event may only have 100 attendees. With over 180 applications, paring down was no easy feat.
Five TEDx Wilmington University committee members were tasked with audience selection. The group chose the audience in the same fashion used to choose speakers - by interest, passion, and creativity.
- Interest - This person communicates a high level of excitement in attending the vents; strong interest in learning from the TED talks and applying what they learned to continue the “TED experience”.
- Passion - The responses demonstrate high enthusiasm and belief in the TED philosophy; fervent about “ideas worth sharing”.
- Creativity - Use of personality and thought behind the responses.
Some applications displayed wit. Others made you think. A few were almost blank. After two hours of sifting and decision-making, the lucky 100 were chosen to receive golden tickets for the first-ever TEDx Wilmington University event.
Each audience member will be notified via email soon.
