The TED Prize turns our staff into genies: every year, we give a million dollars to one inspiring leader with a bold wish for the world. Here’s a sampling of wishes that have won in recent years:

“My wish is to help design the future of learning by supporting children all over the world to tap into their innate sense of wonder and work together. Help me build the School in the Cloud.” —Sugata Mitra, winner of the 2013 prize

“I wish for you to stand up for what you care about by participating in a global art project, and together we’ll turn the world…INSIDE OUT.” —JR in 2011
