The Rather Prize is a $10k prize given to the person behind the best idea to improve education in the state of Texas. The statewide prize is open to students, teachers and administrators in Texas. During the session, the prizewinner will present their idea as part of a discussion with Dan Rather, TV journalist and Rather Prize co-founder, and Martin Rather, Rather Prize Operational Director. We will begin with a discussion of Dan Rather’s Texan education, shifting to Martin Rather discussing the Rather Prize details and then the winner’s presentation followed by an open Q&A.
