Islamic Science

Poster Expo and Competition

Assalamu A’laikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,

Dear respected brother/sister,

We would like to extend a special invitation to you and your children to participate in an Islamic Science Poster Exhibition event which will be held on Saturday March 31st, 2018 during ICNA-MAS Annual Convention at the Baltimore Convention Center.

We will be accepting posters on the following topics:

  1. Science in the Quran

  2. Muslim Contribution to Science

Students will be judged at two levels:

  1. Middle school level

  2. High school level

Three prizes will be awarded at each level.

Please follow the guidelines below to prepare and participate in the poster session:

  1. The recommended poster size is 36”x48” (Project Board/Tri-fold poster board available in Wall Mart, Hobby-Lobby, etc.). No rolled regular poster please. We will provide the required materials to display posters on Saturday March 31, 2018 at convention site.

    Note: Digital work will be accepted as long as it meets all the same requirements.

  2. We are encouraging parents and elder brothers/sisters to help and guide participating students in topic selection and practice for better presentation which help students learn about Islam: our main goal of this exhibition.

  3. Select a short title which appropriately represents the content of the poster. Mention your full name, grade, school name after the title.

    Please put your email address and telephone number(s) on the back of the poster.

  4. The letters of the poster should be big enough to be easily readable from a short distance.

  5. Each poster will be judged by at least three separate judges. The judgment criteria will be based on:

a) appropriate selection of poster title (based on our two mentioned topics)

b) having easy description and flow of the poster content and selected candidate will speak about the art work to the judges (introduction, description, conclusion or learning points, etc.)

c) on the ability of the presenter to answer questions about the poster content.

Please pay special attention on these three points to win the prize. Mentioning of appropriate Quranic verse(s) will be a big plus but not mandatory in topics of “Science in The Quran”.
