Chicago (U.S.A) : After successful conducting the Muslim Spelling Bee 2012 edition through the support of nine regional Islamic School - American Youth Academy, Tampa, Florida; Al-Ihsan Academy, South Ozone Park, New York; Darul Arqam, South River, New Jersey; Al-Hadi School of Accelerative, Houston, Texas; MCC Fulltime Islamic School, Morton Grove, Illinois; Mohammed Schools of Atlanta, Atlanta-Decatur, Georgia; Orange Crescent School, Garden Grove, California; Islamic School of Irving, Dallas/Forth/Worth, Texas and Precious Sprouts Of Ann Arbor, Detroit, Michigan.

This year Muslim Spelling Bee added three locations- Muslim Community of Folsom, Folsom/Sacramento, California; Muslim Community School/ Alim Academy, Potomac, Maryland and Al-Salam Day School, St. Louis, Missouri so students from other parts of the country can participate in the competition.

Chicago-based entrepreneur Tausif Malik perceived a need for a platform of competition in which children could engage from around the world. “Muslims are not aware of spelling beesnbecause they are focused on getting their children into engineering or medicine,” says Tausif.

Hence, choosing a talent that is universal to the age group helped us select ‘spelling’. TMA Worldwide, the Group organising the inter-school, inter-state, inter-region competition would also launch other educational competitions such as Muslim Science Bee, Muslim Math Bee, Muslim Geography Bee and Muslim Science Projects.

This year the competition has added a new group for students who are very young especially from the kindergarten. The competition is scheduled to begin in February 2013 and conclude in May 2012 at the historic Des Plaines Theatre, Des Plaines (suburb of Chicago), Illinois.
Tausif explains that there will be a cash prize, scholarships, college sponsorships, companies giving holiday gifts as benefits for the families of children participating in Muslim Spelling Bee Competition.

University Islamic Financial (UIF ) is this year’s platinum sponsor for the event. “University Islamic Financial (UIF) is proud and honored to support 2013 Muslim Spelling Bee competition.
