Assalamu-alaikum parents!

The ISGL Youth Group is bringing back its July (Halalapalooza) competition! Last year, youth competed in a wide variety of activities (sports, community service, cooking night, Islamic Jeopardy, a field trip to Fair Oaks Farms, and much more) throughout the month of July. With the completion of each activity, youth accumulated points as they attempted to be crowned the overall champion. After an intense month of competition, Mohaned Badawi emerged as last Summer’s champion ma shaa Allah.

A description, re-cap, and pictures from the July 2010 youth group competition can be found on this blog (please use the following link):

Due to the popularity of last year’s program, we have decided to put together another (re-vamped) competition to take place next month (July) in shaa Allah. Details of this year’s Summer program (and how it works) can be found in the  document below (entitled “Summer Program Details_Parents”):

In the second document below (entitled “Calendar of Activities_Parents”) a draft of the proposed activities for this year’s competition can be found:

Calendar of Activities_Parents

The draft will hopefully provide your family with an idea of the types of activities that are being organized for the youth. Dates and times are still being finalized. A final version of the calendar will be submitted to each participant’s family at the Kick-Off Event on July 8, 2011 in shaa Allah.

The final document below (entitled “Registration Form”) contains the official registration form for the July 2011 youth group program.
