Dear all,
OGRS (open geospatial research and education symposium) conference will be
held in Lugano in October 2018 (http://2018.ogrs-community.org) and is
focused on open source, open education and open science on geospatial

The open geoscience committee agrees to use 500 € from its allocated budget
for an OSGeo Open Geoscience prize.

I would like also to ask OSGeo to sponsor one drink at the ice breaker
party and have one booth to promote OSGeo within this community, the
maximum cost should be 1000 usd.

I will personally manage the booth.

Thanks for your consideration and feedback.

Maybe the "unforenseen costs" in the budget can be used for this award;
so the prize could be 500 USD instead?

My logic is that otherwise, 1000 USD eats up a lot of the budget.
