The Islamic Forum for Australian Muslims (IFAM) will hold its Online Islamic Quiz this year on Saturday 24 July.
This will be the 15th year of the annual quiz which started in 2007 in Canberra and has since become a national event.
Prior to last year the quiz was conducted face-to-face in a university lecture theatre.
It went online last year, using the Moodle learning management system and Zoom, due to the COVID-19 restrictions and will continue in this format due its national coverage.
The competition, in which all participants are guaranteed a prize, caters for children from pre-school to Year 10.
Its objective is to raise awareness and familiarity of Islamic knowledge and teachings in the students as well as present them with an opportunity to interact with peers across Australia.
The prizes on offer are quite impressive and range from gift cards to laptops to an Umrah ticket worth $1500. Last year the major prize was won by Nawal Usman from the ACT.
The prizes are possible thanks to the generosity of the quiz sponsors which include Muslim families and businesses including:
UAK Design & Construction
AAA Rapid Homes Pty. Ltd.
ICFAL- islamic Coorperative Finance Aus Ltd.
Pacifik Halal Meats
Kingsley’s Chicken Belconnen
