ALL ABOUT GENIUS 2016

Rules
ELIGIBILITY

The GENIUS Olympiad is open to all international and U.S. students studying

in grades eight through twelve (or the equivalent).


All students under 18 years old must attend the GENIUS Olympiad with an

adult supervisor (a teacher, a parent, or a guardian).Students who are 18 years


old and study in high school may participate without an adult supervisor.
The same project can NOT be submitted in consecutive years without

significant progress or changes.


Projects which are submitted to other organizations/fairs can be submitted

without changes.
A valid application must be submitted (including affiliated fair Genius

Certificate winners) using the GENIUS Olympiad application system by the


deadline with application fee payment.
All students and supervisors have to communicate in English well enough to
present their projects. Translators for student presenters are NOT allowed.

FEES

Application fee is $40 per project and is non-refundable. The

application fee must be paid before the application deadline in order to complete
your application. All applicants, including GENIUS Certificate winners, must pay
the application fee. Projects without an application fee will not be considered for
evaluation.
Participation fee is $60 per attendee (including student, supervisor,

guests) who will attend the GENIUS Olympiad and is non-refundable. The
participation fee must be paid before the registration deadline in order to
guarantee your place at the GENIUS Olympiad. All finalists and their supervisors
and guests must pay the participation fee. Participation fee covers lodging,
meals, and trip to Niagara falls during the event (see finalist guide for details of
these)
Guest fee is $600 per guest and does not include participation fee. Guests
(additional participants on projects, such extra supervisor, siblings, parents etc)
are allowed if space is available. The guest fee is $350 for those who will stay
off-campus (in a hotel, they will pay the hotel fee and make the
arrangements). There is a limit on the number of adult supervisors (teacher or
parent). In order to maximize the number of projects and student participation,
we allow only one adult supervisor (teacher/parent) for every 6 students from
the same school/organization. If there are 7-12 finalist students from the same
school/organization, then two supervisors are allowed. Additional
supervisors/relatives other than allowed ones will be recognized as guests and

will be asked to pay the guest fee. Guests fees must be paid during
registration. The guest fee is fully refundable until May 22nd and is 50%
refundable after that date. Guest fee covers meals, lodging (except those stay in
hotel and pays only $350), and trip to Niagara Falls.
Fees will be paid online during application and registration.

LIMITATIONS ON STUDENTS & PROJECTS

Each student may present only one project. The only exception to this rule is

that students may present more than one project within the same disciplines,
such as multiple art projects but not across disciplines, such as art and science.
Students may apply with multiple projects in any discipline to increase their

chance of acceptance, but will be selected as a finalist for only one project.
A maximum of two students may present a science, short film, or a design

project.
Only one student may present a creative writing, poster art, photography,

satirical illustration, or music composition projects.


A maximum of three students may present a music performance project.
There is no limit to how many projects may be submitted from the same

school/organization. There is no limit to the number of projects selected as


finalists from any one school.
All projects from the same school or organization should be submitted under
one application login in order to control communication and projects more
efficiently.

GENERAL RULES

explanation.
Finalists/Applicants who do not submit required information on time and in

the requested format shall be disqualified.


In all aspects of the projects, participants must maintain integrity.
