According to a SXSW press release, Obama will be answering select questions related to this theme: “What does it mean today to find your passion and act on it?”

Questions are due by 6 p.m. CST Thursday, March 10.

The first lady will be discussing  Let Girls Learn on Wednesday, March 16. Let Girls Learn is a global initiative which aims to help provide education to the more than 62 million girls around the world who are not in school.

The event is open to all SXSW Music, Film, Gold, and Platinum registrants.

Those seeking to attend better get there quickly. Austin officials are already planning for SXSW traffic overload, and Mayor Steve Adler has been imploring people to work from home Friday when President Barack Obama speaks at the festival.
