Chelsea Clinton and entertainers Ciara and Darren Criss will highlight We Day Minnesota next month.

The day-long event, scheduled for Tuesday Nov. 3 at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, is a mix of entertainment, education and pep rally for middle school and high school students, to inspire them to create change in their communities and make the world a better place.

Veteran actors Henry Winkler and Marlee Matlin will also appear, along with a boys choir from Kenya, a poet, an astronaut and others who have created or are working with public service organizations around the U.S. and Canada. Here's the complete lineup.

It's been called the “Super Bowl for doing good,” and the St. Paul event will attract some 18,000 Minnesota students from hundreds of schools, who will spend the day there instead of in the classroom.

Students can’t buy a ticket for We Day – they earn it through service. Schools and groups take on one local and one global action through the We Act program to earn their way to We Day, according to the program’s website. We Day and the We Act program are organized by Canada-based nonprofit Free the Children.

This is the third year for We Day in Minnesota. Last year's celebrities included Magic Johnson, Colby Callait and Martin Sheen.

We Day started in Canada in 2007, and events are now planned in 14 cities in the U.S., Canada and Britain, the Star Tribune reports.
