OnIslam – March 8, 2012
The Annual Muslim Interscholastic Tournament (MIST Toronto) is set to open on Saturday, March 10 on the York University campus for an annual Muslim interscholastic tournament. Launched in 2001 by a freshman at the University of Houston, MIST is a fun, educational, interactive program of competitions and workshops. It aims at bringing high school students together from around the country to develop leadership, communication, and other creative skills, all while gaining a deeper understanding of Islam and Muslims.
MIST Toronto was the first MIST region to be established outside of the United States back in 2008. In just four years, MIST Toronto not only became the largest MIST region, but also it became the biggest Muslim high school event in North America.
