We want you to kick off the Elevate Main Stage! Elevate is the world’s fastest growing tech festival welcoming 20,000+ guests including tech titans, thought leaders, and celebrities. Not only will you be featured on our Main Stage opening moment on Tuesday, September 24th, you’ll also receive a free ticket to see Michelle Obama speak at Elevate that same evening.

To qualify, you must…

  • be between the ages of 13-19 as of September 24th, 2019
  • be able to travel to Toronto on September 24th, 2019
  • have parental permission (if 17 years of age or younger on September 24th, 2019)

Qualify? Great! Here’s what you need to do next:

  1. Choose a flag that you most closely identify with. This could be a Canadian or national flag, or it could be your favourite sports or community organization flag. Whatever flag you feel best represents you.
  2. Submit a video of yourself in that flag and create a 30-second video to the tune of K’naan’s “Wavin’ Flag”. In the video, be creative! Dance, sing, lipsync, do cartwheels.

We’ll be in touch with the finalists by August 30, 2019.
