Cadets have fun practicing effective communication techniques and they will work towards presenting a prepared speech and a short impromptu speech to a group of judges. The squadron competition will be held on 7 March 2018. The top 2 or 3 cadets will advance to the zone competition on 17 March 2018. Top cadets move forward to the provincial and national competitions.
Effective Speaking is a critical skill to develop and practicing this skill will help cadets to be successful both in cadets and outside. All cadets are encouraged to attend Effective Speaking training. Any cadets who are applying for a Scholarship Course for the first time are required to participate in the Effective Speaking program.
