And the winner is…

WAIT! Before we tell you who won the Open Mic 2016. We have some extra information to share… We didn’t have one winner… We didn’t have two winners! NO! We had three winners! How great is that? For the first time we had three winners. Clearly the audience was moved by the pitchers, could relate to the pitchers and even laughed with the pitchers. As a team TEDxSaxionUniversity is very proud!

And the winners are…

‘’If we want to live in a peaceful world, we must choose to stand for love, always.  I know this idea is worth spreading because of one poem and its ripple effect.‘

Congratulations again to the winners! This means they will be stepping on the red dot again in november. On a really big stage this time! Be sure to be there. Instead of a three minutes pitch, they will be sharing their full story! Write it down in your agenda – or put in your phone – 29 november at Deventer: the big TEDxSaxionUniversity event! 

Also to all the other pitchers… Congratulations! Although you didn’t win. You stepped on stage, turned your nerves into energy and shared your idea with the audience! You did it!
