TEDx GF: Success

 GRAND FORKS -- Congratulations to the organizers of the inaugural TEDx Grand Forks event! The sold-out event took place at the Empire Arts Center on Feb. 7th.

Becca Grandstrand and volunteers executed a first class event with enlightening speakers -- a fashion designer, a cardiologist, an education consultant and an educator, and many opportunities for networking.

A huge thank you to the business and individual sponsors who believed in the premise of the event: ideas worth spreading, ideas that can take our world to the next level. These ideas included unique and challenging thoughts ranging from music therapy to entrepreneurship to stem-cell research to experimental education.

Thank you for bringing this exciting event to Grand Forks. I look forward to the next TEDx.
