I-SWEEEP Eligibility  Genius Olympiad Eligibility

 

 

Follow @VTScienceFair     Facebook

 

Although this comes to us as a result of our affiliation with ISEF, it is not tied to ISEF.  All interested grade 9-12 students can be eligible for these prizes.  Projects working on research involving Ecology and Biodiversity, Environmental Quality, Resources and Energy, or Human Ecology are eligible.

 

2015

2015 is the seventh year of Genius Olympiad (GO) at the VSSMF.  VSSMF has been allotted two slots for GO as in the past.

 

On the 28th of March, VSSMF day, our judges will select the two finalists.  Each finalist must PROMPTLY open the registration package we will provide at the Awards Ceremony and do as instructed.  Tuesday, April 7th is GO's deadline for registration, so both finalists, and their respective adult supervisor (a finalist's parent or teacher) on the trip must be prepared to register quickly to meet GO's deadline.  See 2015 Deadlines.

 

2014

2014 is the sixth year of Genius Olympiad (GO) at the VSSMF.  VSSMF has been allotted two slots for GO as in the past.

 

On the 29th of March, VSSMF day, our judges will select the two finalists.  Each finalist must PROMPTLY open the registration package we will provide at the Awards Ceremony and do as instructed.  April 1st (the following Tuesday) is GO's deadline for registration, so both finalists, and their respective adult supervisor (a finalist's parent or teacher) on the trip must be prepared to register quickly to meet GO's deadline.  See 2014 Deadlines.

 

The VSSMF will cover all documented* application fees.  VSSMF will also cover documented* meal costs and mileage for each finalist and his/her adult supervisor as they travel between each finalist's school to Oswego, NY.  *Instructions for documentation will be in the registration package.

 

Genius Olympiad will cover room and board while attending Genius Olympiad.

 

 

VSSMF rules for Genius Olympiad Eligibility for 2013

 

In 2013, because the VSSMF is so late, the procedure for selecting the two finalists to go to Genius Olympiad will be different from the usual method of determining the winners on Fair Day.

 

This year, all eligible projects (grades 8-12 - please note that 8th graders are eligible this year), will be considered based on their abstracts only.  Eligible projects must deal with some aspect of environmental issues, more specifically, a) ecology or biodiversity, b) environmental quality [air, water, soil], c) resources and energy, or d) human ecology.  Since abstracts are due by March 15th (see Deadlines), the VSSMF panel of Genius Olympiad judges will examine all abstracts and determine the two finalists and notify them by March 25th.  By April 1st, each finalist must to go to the Genius Olympiad application site to register for participation.
