TED Prize » Get Involved » Participate in a Wish

The TED Prize works with individuals, organizations, and companies to think bigger, foster high-impact collaborations, and support inspiring ideas. Since the birth of the Prize nine years ago, TED prizewinning initiatives have raised 17 million dollars for ocean protection, helped over 650,000 children in LA schools eat healthier, and inspired over 100,000 people to engage in participatory art project portraits worldwide. Join us by participating in a wish and joining a global community of thinkers and doers who have helped our winners realize their dreams.
