THE IMPACT: GENIUS Olympiad actively recruits participants from 1700 selected schools and organizations in the United States and around the world. These schools and organizations are committed to improving education. The Event receives applications from 1200 students who work with 300-400 teachers and parents. These parties are active on our website year round. Every year we receive thousands of new website visitors from 110+ countries. In June, the GENIUS Olympiad and SUNY Oswego will host 350-400 high achieving and motivated high school students as well as 180-250 high school teachers and parents supporting the efforts of the students. In addition to the global reach, Central New York is well represented, accounting for 400-500 persons. Central New York residents in attendance are highly educated; interested in educational activities; interested in environmental issues and resolve; and/or international events.
GENIUS Olympiad and SUNY Oswego send 4-6 press releases prior to the event, all of which include the names of main sponsors. Social media is an important channel for our global reach and therefore GENIUS is extremely active on both Facebook and Twitter. This strategy includes repeated mentions of sponsor companies and their involvement. GENIUS Olympiad 2013 was promoted live on WRVO, The Post-Standard’s Sunday Magazine, CNYCentral television, YNN (now known as TIme Warner Cable News), the Palladium Times as well as several local weeklies. In addition, we actively announce events and programs through NPR affiliates and appropriate print channels to invite public for our events.
