Youth have bright ideas. Let’s launch them.

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

At this dynamic pitch competition, six 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. Adults will have the opportunity to listen and lend support.


  • The event is from 3pm – 7pm for middle and high school students.
  • Registration has closed for this event.


  • The event is from 5pm – 7pm for adults.
