We derive a class of variational functionals which arise naturally in conformal geometry. In the special case when the Riemannian manifold is locally conformal flat, the functional coincides with the well-studied functional which is the integration over the manifold of the k-symmetric function of the Schouten tensor of the metric on the manifold.
