Notice: We are closely monitoring COVID-19 updates and following the announcements and guidelines provided by the CDC, NY State Health Department, and local health departments and school districts. At this moment, we plan on holding GENIUS Olympiad as scheduled. As we get closer to the event, we may make a different determination. It is still too early to tell how COVID-19 will impact GENIUS Olympiad. If the decision is made to cancel the event, we will refund participation fees. Applicants who have been selected as finalists may choose to request an application fee refund OR have their project as a finalist for next year. Applicants not selected as finalists may not request an application fee refund as the decision on those projects is final.
