Social Good Prize question - What does answering yes mean?

For the Intel Hacks 2017 contest, does answering 'Yes' to "Are you entering your app into the Social Good prize?" preclude you from winning the other prizes?

My submission has social good implications but I don't want to remove myself from the rest of the (more substantial) prizes by answer 'Yes'. The wording of the question is confusing as to what will happen if you say 'yes'. Is in inclusive or exclusive?

Does anyone know?

    The social good prize is awarded to the team with the best social impact. If you think that your project will have the best social impact, then click yes to enter this "side-event".

    Hey Jeff,

    Yes, Jack is correct. From the rules, "Bonus Prize awarded at Poster’s discretion to the highest scoring Application with a potential impact on social good." The Poster's discretion means that we won't award it to a project that checked Yes even if their project has nothing to do with Social Good :)

    All the best,

    Thanks Jack and Stefanie. This is what I assumed, I just wanted to make sure. Just wish I had a little more time, haha.
