I know of two free child Genesis themes on GitHub:
But there are none on WordPress.org (despite many Genesis *plugins* on WordPress.org).
I find this very surprising. Does StudioPress or WordPress / Automattic prohibit Genesis child themes from being published on wordpress.org's theme directory?

I shared my question with the #themereview channel on Slack and they confirmed that Genesis child themes are not allowed because the genesis parent theme is required to be in place for a child theme to work.
The WordPress.org theme repository does not allow child themes of any theme not hosted in the repo.
This is not specific to Genesis at all and not an indicator of quality.
Remember the theme review team are also all volunteers.
