The Young Innovator Program will open again next year.

TEDxGatewayArch knows that young people of different backgrounds and perspectives will become St. Louis' future business and community leaders.  Your passions, energy, and ideas are a critical part of our future.  

Our Young Innovators Program provides deserving youth in the St. Louis region with the opportunity to attend our events free of charge.  We’re looking for talented, creative and visionary individuals interested in informing the conversation and spreading the sparks ignited at the event throughout our region.

When the program opens up next year, you will be able to submit an application via this page. Your application will include:

  • How do you bring a unique background and perspective to TEDxGatewayArch? We are looking for people from all different backgrounds and perspectives. How do your career goals, heritage, or hobbies/interests reflect this? (150 words or less)

  • What are you working on right now that you are most proud of?

  • Why do you want to attend TEDxGatewayArch?
