Who speaks at EDGE?

EDGE features a variety of speakers, from motivational speakers, to community leaders, to panels of professionals in the non-profit sector.  It is important to note that EDGE does not take sides on politics or religion, and none of our speakers push a religious or political agenda on the students.  The speakers' aim is to teach, empower and motivate the students to become leaders in their local communities and in the world.

EDGE 2021

At EDGE 2021, we will host a combined group of sophomores and juniors to ensure that the COVID-19 pandemic does not prevent any student from experiencing this outstanding leadership opportunity.

For EDGE 2021 ONLY, schools will be able to select 2 students: the student they selected for 2020 (must have submitted selection form by April 1, 2020) and the student they select for 2021. The selection form for 2021 sophomores will be sent out in January 2021.

We will require all 2020 sophomores to complete an updated 2021 Registration Form which we will use as an RSVP to confirm their availability to attend EDGE 2021.
