Are you a member of a established 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose sole purpose is related to the field of hydrology? If your answer is yes and prize money is awarded to WAWDA, I want your organization to be the beneficiary of this prize.
Are you interested in the formation of a nonprofit and a nonprofit board to receive prize money, in the event this project is a prize winner of Erie Hack 2017?
There is no financial gain to you becoming a board member. You will only have the discretion of where and how the money is used.
