Effective Speaking 2022

Effective Speaking Competition – 2022

The competitions for the 2022 year will again be held virtually. 

There are no rules for which platform to use at the squadron level; just do your best with resources you have. We are more focused on participation than quality at local levels. 

Zones – April 2 and 3rd time TBD – if you have a date preference please indicate in your email to Leslie

Saskatchewan Provincial Effective Speaking Competition – Saturday, April 9th 

National Air Cadet Effective Speaking Competition – Saturday, June 4 

**ACC54’s need to be completed before cadets compete in squadron competition. They are online this year (paper version not accepted)

Cadets will not be allowed to participate at Zones unless this is completed. 

Here is a link to the online form:


For Zones/Provincial Competitions cadets should be in uniform, no wedge.

There will be cash prizes for Provincial & National winners.

More details to follow.
