About the Muslim Spelling Bee
Chicago based entrepreneur and founder of Muslim Spelling Bee, Tausif Malik, saw a need for a platform to increase Muslim student participation in local, national and international educational competitions, as well a venue where children could engage with peers from around the country. The purpose of the program, he says, is “to get Muslim children into the mainstream.” The competition will be held in select cities at Muslim private schools nationwide, however, competitions will also be open to students from private schools, public schools, or home schools, and children up to 14 years old.
TMA Worldwide, the Group organizing the inter-school, inter-state, inter-region competition hopes to also launch future educational competitions such as Muslim Science Bee, Muslim Math Bee, Muslim Geography Bee and Muslim Science Projects.
