Winner Announced: Build Your Own TEDxChange

Muhammad Yunus, Michelle Rhee, Pierre Ferrari, and Anders Wilhelmson, plus a performance by the Arcade Fire. That's part of the winning lineup.



We're happy to announce the winner of our contest, in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, in which we asked readers to come up with their ideal TEDxChange lineup. The winner is Chandra Wroblewski, whose lineup—Muhammad Yunus (pictured), Michelle Rhee, Pierre Ferrari, and Anders Wilhelmson (with musical guest Arcade Fire)—had the most exciting and topical selection of speakers. On top of that, it has an amazing idea audience interaction: social network gaming.

You can read all of Wroblewski's submission below, and you can see the other top five finalists here. We would like to thank everyone who participated. We hope to see all your suggestions at a TED event soon.
