“In 2017, students from more communities and schools in the greater Dayton area auditioned, including home school students,” said chairperson Rachel Graves, “The event last March was a huge success. TEDxDayton patrons have supported our efforts to bring the TEDx model of locally organized events with ideas worth sharing to the youth of the Dayton area.”
