Fit the bill? We've got all the information you need to apply. Hurry up, the deadline's October 15.

This year's "Changing the Way We Eat" was extremely successful and garnered thousands of live participants as well as viewing parties across the country. A quick refresher, TEDxManhattan is an educational seminar featuring the food industry's top leaders. Past participants include Josh Viertel and Mark Bittman. If you're extremely into food politics, this is the Oscars of the awards season.

Finalists will be chosen by November 1 and the winner will be announced in early December. The winner will have the opportunity to be a speaker onstage during the event, plus a full day access to all of the day's activities. To apply, your project does not have to be completed by the end of the year, but you must have had some type of impactful result by that time.

Here are a few Miami peeps that we think should apply: Erin Healy of Youth L.E.A.D., Mario Yanez of Earth Learning. and any member from Slow Food Miami.

Apply here now! Don't forget, the deadline's fast approaching on October 15. Learn more about TEDxManhattan by visiting tedxmanhattan.org/challenge.
