Youth have bright ideas. Let’s launch them.

On Saturday, Nov. 9, 2019, BRIDGES will host the fifth annual Youth Ignite Memphis summit at the Jim Boyd BRIDGES Center.

At this dynamic pitch competition, eight youth presenters have exactly 5 minutes and 20 slides to present their ideas on how to make Memphis a better place for all young people. Youth audience members will then vote on which ideas they would like to see funded.

The application for youth presenters is now open! If you’re passionate about a social issue, complex challenge, or persistent need in your community and have a plan to solve it, apply by Monday, Sept. 2! You could win up to $500 funding and additional support to help make your plan a reality.
