Eight young changemakers will be chosen as winners of our annual Staples Youth Social Entrepreneurship Competition and invited to present at the first TEDxYSE event in Washington, D.C.
How do you qualify? Just fill out the short entry form. You can also nominate an inspiring young leader (age 12 to 24).
Winners will be chosen on a rolling basis, so don’t wait.

Staples associates worldwide will vote to award a grand prize to one team for its exceptional achievements and impact.
