This year we kicked off a new tradition, the Ideas in Action award. The inaugural recipient is Lara Stein, pictured here with the award in hand at the MIT Media Lab.

Lara is the founder of TEDx, the movement that allows local communities like ours to hold their own TED events. Under Lara’s leadership thousands of TEDx events have been held worldwide. She is also the Director of the TED Prize, a $1 million dollar prize awarded annually to an extraordinary individual with a creative and bold vision to spark global change. This year the award went to education innovator Sugata Mitra and his groundbreaking work with self-organized learning environments.

Lara Stein is the embodiment of Ideas in Action and we were honored to have had her attend and participate in TEDxBeaconStreet and we’re so pleased to recognize her important work.

The award itself was created by Ben Peters who took our Ideas in Action logo and printed a 3D model of it at MIT.  Brilliant!  Thank you Ben, for creating “Our Oscar.”
