Submissions for Ignite 2012 now OPEN!

Submissions are now open for Ignite Chanukah 2012!  Have you been itching to talk to over 200 young adult Jews about your passion?  Here is your chance.  Talk about something Jewish or put a Jew-ish twist on a topic you’re interested in.  Not sure what to talk about?  Why not contribute to our regular topics:  sex, drugs, and rock n roll.

Never heard of Ignite?  Not sure if this is for you?  What is an Ignite spark?  A spark is a 5 minute presentation about just about anything you want, accompanied by 20 powerpoint slides that automatically advance every 15 seconds while you’re talking.

Not so scary, right?  Trust us, this is a chance to have a lot of fun with some great people while talking about something you truly love.  Submit your idea here and tell us about your passion.

Also, if you want to purchase tickets for this year’s Ignite, they are now available here!
