Dozens of high school students from across the state of Georgia gathered at Georgia Tech last weekend to compete in the Muslim Inter-Scholastic Tournament’s tenth annual Atlanta competition.

“[MIST] is a fun, educational interactive program of competitions and workshops geared towards bringing high school students together from around the nation to develop leadership, communication, and other creative skills, all while gaining a deeper understanding of Islam and Muslims,” organizers said.

Students from the Muslim Youth of Augusta won top honors as Best Overall Team. Abdulrahman Daoudi, Ibraheem Budier (UpLift), and Ruqayya Loftin (A1) respectively won first, second and third place in Best Overall Individual category. Fouzia Haddad of Al-Falah Academy won Best Coach.

The competition also recognized winners in dozens of other categories, including poetry, spoken word, short fiction, extemporaneous speaking, debate, Quran recitation, religious knowledge, improvised performances, mathematics, short film, photography, and graphic design, among other topics.

MIST holds regional competitions in over thirty locations across the country, including Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Nashville, New York City, Philadelphia, Richmond, Toronto and Washington, DC.

Local winners then compete in the national competition, which is scheduled to occur August 7-9 in Houston, Texas.

Event sponsors of MIST Atlanta included the Islamic Circle of North America, Servants of Allah, United Muslim Relief, the Islamic Speakers Bureau, Madina Institute, Roswell Community Masjid, and Georgia Tech MSA.
