The TED Prize turns our staff into genies: every year, we give $1 million dollars to one inspiring leader with a bold wish for the world. A sampling of wishes that have won in recent years:

“Help us spark a global movement to record and preserve meaningful conversations with one another that result in an ever-growing digital archive of the collective wisdom of humanity.” — Dave Isay, winner of the 2015 TED Prize

“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 in 2013
