We are pleased to announce our executive team for TEDxYouth@OKC. These ten individuals will lead the key positions necessary to execute this event. Each executive team member will seek to add individuals to his/her team in order to fully accomplish the necessary tasks. Due to an overwhelming amount of support from our community, we have decided to close additions to our committees unless an invitation is received from one of our executives. Please CONTACT us to let us know if you would like to volunteer to help the day of the event.

Delaney has wanted to host a TEDx event for quite some time. She applied to TED for a license to host a TEDx youth event in OKC because she wanted to connect with other high school students and engage in deeper discussions about issues that pertain to all of them.



Katie Shea – Curator

Katie is leading the selection committee that decides who will be speaking and performing at our event. Her duties include managing the application process, speaker training, speaker/performer bios, and media interviews for speakers/performers.
