Competition Rules**:

Please read carefully through the following details before registering for Nationals 2014. Competitions will be judged based on the Official MIST Rulebook 2014. If you have any questions, please email competitions@getmistified.com

** Pilot competitions will not be offered at MIST Nationals 2014. This includes: Mobile Apps, Quran Recitation Level 3, Culinary Arts, Soccer, Parliamentary Debate, French Oratory, and French Prepared Essay

UPDATE: Quran Recitation Level 3 is now being offered for qualified competitors. However, as a pilot competition, National winners will be recognized, but the competition points will not count towards individual or team overall scores.

Coalition Teams

We understand your entire team cannot always participate at Nationals, so to ensure you meet the minimum requirement of participants, competitors within the same region may work together, as a coalition team, for any of the following competitions:

- Group Projects (1-6 competitors – note that the minimum has changed to 1 competitor for all group projects for Nationals 2014)
– MIST Quiz Bowl (2-6 competitors)
– Improv (4-6 competitors)
– Basketball (5-10 competitors)

Each coalition team must email registration@getmistified.com by June 15th to approve their coalition team. The email should include the complete list of competitor names, the school each competitor is registered with, the region they are competing from, and the competition they are competing in, for each coalition team (please follow example below).

Coalition team for Business Venture:
Khadija Mohamed; Kaimuki High School; MIST Hawaii
Nada Sharif; Moanalua High School; MIST Hawaii
Yahya Khan; Moanalua High School; MIST Hawaii

Coalition Team Rules

1) All competitors competing on each coalition team must be qualifiers for Nationals 2014 in that competition (placed 1st-5th in that specific competition at their Regional Tournament).

- Example: Aisha and Maryam placed 4th in Improv from Moanalua High School, and Laila and Zahra placed 2nd from Kiamuki High School at MIST Hawaii 2014. They can compete in Improv at Nationals 2014 as a coalition team for Improv. Mona and her team placed 6th in Improv, and Ameena did not compete in Improv at Regionals. Neither Mona or Ameena can compete in Improv at Nationals 2014, not even with the coalition team.

2) A maximum of two (2) separate schools may register as a coalition team for the allowed competitions, with the exception of basketball (which may include multiple schools to form a coalition).

3) The coalition team must abide by the minimum/maximum number of competitors. For example: MIST Quiz Bowl will still require 2-6 members, but they can come from a max of two (2) schools.

4) Coalition teams will be counted as one team, and as such regular team rules apply for each competition, this includes one unified submission per coalition team.

- Example: Moanalua High School placed 1st in Research in Action and Kiamuki High School placed 2nd in the same competition, but only one competitor from each team is able to come to Nationals. They can compete together to fulfill the minimum for Research in Action (2 competitors) and work on a unified project together.

- Note: For best results in Group Projects, either expand on one team’s project from Regionals or work together on a new project. Group Project outlines/abstracts with a 4-week early submission deadline still require approval.

5) No substitutions will be allowed for any competitions. This means that a competitor who did not qualify for a competition during Regionals will not be able to compete during Nationals in place of their teammate.

Early Submission Deadlines
If you are competing in any of the following competitions at Nationals, you will be contacted with details for how to submit your specific early submission.

4-Week Early Submissions (July 4, 2014):

- Business Venture Outline
– Research in Action Abstract

Announcing the 2014 Theme!

The Art of Generosity: Finding the Greatness to Give

“You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.” -Khalil Gibran

Giving is an art. Mastering it requires three components: 1) finding and nurturing a deep concern for others, 2) developing valuable skills and traits that can be used to serve them, and 3) breaking free from any desires that hold us back from serving a cause greater than ourselves. The beauty of this art is that it inspires everyone to “pay it forward.” Not only does it honor the given, but it transforms the giver, as any true sacrifice enriches the self. Generosity then, is not about being a candle that burns away while giving light to others but a battery that recharges so it can keep on giving instead.

Generosity. Altruism. Charity. Selflessness. These words may sound nice, but what do they mean in practice? They can mean preferring others before ourselves or maybe even leaving our own comfort for a cause. They can be about humility and sacrifice, or just plain good manners and courtesy, about being charitable towards someone without expecting anything in return, or even “smiling in the face of your brother [or sister].” Think about it: what do you have or what can you do for those around you? What is it that they may want or need from you? Is it possible that in trying to find ways to help others, you may just find your own purpose, your own happiness, and your own self?

We challenge you to take a deeper look and analyze the various concepts surrounding this theme. Be creative! Projects and submissions with the most creativity and insight will receive the highest points. Remember, this theme will encompass all of the MIST competitions and workshops at both the regional and national levels. If you have any questions regarding this theme or anything else MIST-related, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Some reasons to be generous:
1. “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” -Ian MacLaren
2. “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” -Mahatma Gandhi
3. “Today for you, tomorrow for me.” -Spanish proverb
4. “Give each other gifts, and you will love each other.” -Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)
5. “The best of people are those who are of the most benefit to others.” -Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)
6. “None of you truly believes until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself.” -Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)
7. “You will not attain righteousness until you give of that which you love.” -Quran 3:92
8. “God is in the aid of a person so long as the person is in the aid of his brother.” -Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)
9. “Save yourself from hell-fire even by giving half a date-fruit in charity, and if you cannot find that, then with a kind word.” -Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)
10. “A cup can only pour forth what it contains.” -Proverb
What are yours?

Important Changes for 2013

Each year, we do our best to improve the way we do competitions at MIST. Part of that process is taking in feedback from everyone, including competitors, coaches, judges, volunteers, and even guests. We’ve been gathering this feedback on our website, and we’re pleased to have been able to make some significant progress this year.

If you’ve participated in MIST previously, you will notice the following important changes:
– All competition procedures and ballots have been reformatted, and many of the rules have been revamped entirely. The new format should allow judges more discretion in the allocation of points and more time to give written feedback.
– A new Honor Code regarding academic integrity has been added.
– Quran Recitation, with Levels 1 and 2, now replaces the Tajweed and Memorization competitions. Advanced Memorization has been discontinued as a National competition, but regions may feature Level 3 or higher for more advanced competitors.
– Research in Action now replaces the Community Service and Research Methods competitions.
– Social Media now replaces the Web Design and Newsletter competitions.
– Improv is now a Bracket competition.
– Children’s Book has been discontinued as a National competition. Short Fiction now requires competitors to specify a target audience, and optional illustrations are permitted for younger audiences.

Stay on the lookout for the competition rule book coming in the next few days!

We hope you enjoy this year’s tournament and continue to send us your valuable feedback.

Announcing the 2013 Theme!!

The Patience of Champions: Rising to a Better Self

Think Michael Jordan. Think Muhammad Ali. If patience doesn’t come to mind, then you don’t know what it takes to be a champion. With hours of practice each day, through sweat, blood, and tears, champions will persevere to achieve their goal through the years. Life throws them surprises, distractions lace their path, yet they rise above every obstacle to be better than their past. No, patience is not sitting idly by hoping for a brighter future, and it’s definitely not about giving up just to have some fun #YOLO. Patience is in that satisfied feeling, burning inside their chest, that they’re doing all they can, and the rest is up to God.

I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now, and live the rest of your life as a champion.’
-Muhammad Ali

But patience is not just for athletes. Ordinary people around the world have harnessed it to bear unimaginable suffering and accomplish extraordinary feats. When a magnitude 9.0 earthquake-tsunami recently hit Japan, the people used gaman to weather the storm with dignity and compassion, not looting and chaos. Under the cruel oppression of dictators and through the horrors of war, ordinary Muslims around the world have used sabr just to survive. No, patience has never been about being passive or taking short cuts, but prayer and time can be tools to move on. No matter the language, patience has always been about hope and discipline, about a willingness to endure the sacrifice now, knowing that better days will come with principled perseverance. Patience is about the rise of a better self.

Perhaps you’re inspired, or perhaps you’re still wondering how any of these examples are relevant to you as a high school student in North America. Think of the challenges you face on a day-to-day basis, and consider how you’re dealing with them. Think of the goals you want to achieve, and consider how you’re pursuing them. What kind of change do you want in your personal life? What kind of sacrifices are you ready to make? What do you think makes life worth the struggle? How can you make today better than yesterday? Are you ready to choose the path of patience?

We challenge you to take a deeper look and analyze the various concepts surrounding this theme. Be creative! Projects and submissions with the most creativity and insight will receive the highest points. Remember, this theme will encompass all of the MIST competitions and workshops at both the regional and national levels. If you have any questions regarding this theme or anything else MIST-related, please do not hesitate to contact us!
