Walden Galleria Welcoming 2024 GENIUS Olympiad Finalists

Published: 06/12/2024

— Over 1,000 high school students expected to visit Western New York’s largest shopping center tomorrow —


Buffalo, NY:  A group of over 1,000 GENIUS Olympiad local and international high school student finalists will make their way west along the I-90 on Thursday, June 13th to visit Western New York’s premier shopping, dining, and entertainment destination at Walden Galleria. A total of 20 buses filled with students from the 2024 GENIUS Olympiad, held this week from June 10th through June 14th at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), plan to arrive Thursday afternoon as part of the program’s scheduled itinerary.


The GENIUS Olympiad is an international high school project competition founded and organized in 2011 by Terra Science and Education. Students compete in five different categories of discipline with an environmental focus. These disciplines include business, robotics, science, visual performing arts, and writing. The competition provides challenges and opportunities for secondary school students to instill the skills and knowledge needed to be the citizens, leaders, scientists, artists, writers, engineers and policy makers of the future. GENIUS Olympiad takes place each year at the end of June and has resumed in-person for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic at new host site, RIT Campus.


Students participating in the competition will have the opportunity to visit Western New York attractions, including Walden Galleria and Niagara Falls.
