OZY Fest Complimentary Tickets

OZY Media has extended a special invite for NSHSS Members and Educators with complimentary tickets to OZY Fest. As an honor society in theory and practice, OZY is excited to contribute to NSHSS's already robust summer programming with this special invitation for members and educators who will be in the NYC area July 20-21.

OZY Fest brings together leaders from business, politics, journalism and entertainment to perform and interact with curious people of all ages. This year's guests include Malcolm Gladwell, Mark Cuban, John Legend, Spike Lee, Stacy Abrams, John Kasich, and many more. Guests will enjoy a wide variety of terrific food (including gluten free options), interactive art, movie theaters showing documentaries, and many more fun and educational opportunities. Last year's festival attracted more than 20,000 people from more than 50 counties for two full days of conversation, comedy and live music.

NSHSS students and educators can apply for a chance to win one (or a pair) of the 1000 complimentary tickets to the July 20-21 event in NYC’s Central Park.

What does OZY mean? 

"We were founded on the belief that more is possible and a determination to question assumptions about how the world operates and what lies ahead. And we built those convictions into our name, which comes from "Ozymandias" by Percy Bysshe Shelley. The poem is commonly read as a warning against outsized egos and the impermanence of power. But we choose to read it differently. To us, it's a call to think big while remaining humble. Admittedly, ours is an unconventional interpretation – because that's who we are. In a world littered with conformity, we like to see things differently."
