We Day celebrates teens who want to help other and change the world

Microsoft YouthSpark reporters Gabrielle, Delaney and Keilon joined We Day co-host Munro Chambers from the hit TeenNick TV show “Degrassi” at We Day Seattle 2013.

There’s nothing like seeing the brilliant spark of an idea in the eyes of a young person – except seeing it in the eyes of 15,000 young people, writes Lisa Brummel, Microsoft executive vice president, human resources. That’s what she and others will see Friday at the second annual We Day in Seattle.

Microsoft is a key sponsor of the event, which celebrates teens who are committed to making a difference in the lives of others.

Students will hear from motivational speakers, leaders and celebrities including Edward Norton, Joe Jonas, Cody Simpson and the Seattle Seahawks. San Francisco’s line-up on March 26 will include Seth Rogen, Orlando Bloom, Selena Gomez, Martin Sheen and Magic Johnson.

“But the real stars, of course, are the amazing high school students who are being rewarded for their We Act community service commitments,” Brummel writes.

To experience We Day Seattle, watch the live stream starting at 9:15 a.m. PT. You can read Brummel’s full post on The Official Microsoft Blog.
