Which of the sentences below is the correct one, and what is the general rule?

  1. I am a scientific committee member in CONTEST_NAME
  2. I am a scientific committee member of CONTEST_NAME
  3. I am a scientific committee member for CONTEST_NAME

The second is unclear, but the first and third example use valid English but imply different things:

  • "I am a scientific committee member in CONTEST_NAME," implies your group is participating in the contest, though that seems an unlikely scenario.
  • "I am a scientific committee member for CONTEST_NAME," implies your group is supervising or advising the contest.
