It is time for the educational marathon! It is a digital event in the Instagram and Telegram, where you will prepare to participate in the Olympiad. You are expected to communicate with experts of each section and managers of the Department of International Relations of the JAS, discuss the most common environmental problems in Ukraine and the world, discuss the topics of war and ecology, disclose social responsibility and academic virtue, and exchange experience with the winners of the GENIUS Olympiad of previous years. To get to the marathon, you need to fill in the Google form on the eve of the project start, placed on the official pages of the JAS on Facebook and Instagram, as well as on the website of the Olympiad.
Then comes the registration of the project for the Olympiad. At this stage you fill in the form in which you give all the information about the project, upload PDF files with finished scientific work, depending on the section you upload your poster or presentation, photo or link to YouTube videos with your presentations.
There are 3 ways to do this:
The first one is to register the project, getting an eco-pass immediately for the national finals of the Olympiad. Eco-pass is provided to projects by educational institutions, schools or teachers who have affiliation from the JAS the organizer GENIUS Olympiad Ukraine. For more information about eco-pass click here.
The second way is to submit the project independently within the limits of individual registration. In this case, the project is selected by the national jury. So only those projects that have received a recommendation from the jury are included in the national final.
The third way is to get a recommendation to participate in the Olympiad as a special prize at the II stage of the All-Ukrainian competition-defense of scientific researches of students-members of the JAS, guaranteeing your participation in the national final without the stage of receiving recommendations from the jury of the Olympiad.
Then there is a stage in which the projects, which participants have registered independently, pass the jury evaluation and assignment of qualification status “Recommended”/“Not recommended”. The recommended project receives an eco-pass for the national final.
If you have received a recommendation from the jury of the Olympiad, the next step is to send a presentation video of your project. The video is used to present and defend the project at the national stage.
Next comes the participation in the national phase. Now, the projects of all eco-pass holders (i.e. those who have received a recommendation from the jury or those who have submitted an application) are evaluated, and project defense is based on the video presentation. The national final is held annually in February-March.
According to the results of the evaluation, participants receive grand prix, gold, silver and bronze medals, as well as badges of honor and special GENIUS Olympiad Ukraine prizes. Those who win the grand prix, gold and in some cases silver medals will receive GENIUS Olympiad Ukraine eco-passes. This means a desired entry to the GENIUS Olympiad Global held annually in the USA!
