Ideas are worth sharing. Together we can make a difference.

The Rather Prize is a $10,000 cash prize to a student, teacher, or administrator in Texas who provides the best idea to improve Texas Education. The prize is open to anyone answering the question “What is your idea to improve education in the state of Texas?”

The initiative was developed in 2016 by Rice University student, Martin Rather and his grandfather, journalist Dan Rather. Winners are announced in Austin at the South By Southwest EDU Conference.

As we gear up for the Rather Prize in March 2020, we’d like you to consider submitting your best idea to improve education. More details will be coming at this site in the near future. In the meantime, visit us on Facebook to learn more about the Rather Prize and previous winners.
