Your child is outgoing and good at expressing him/herself in front of people? Here is an excellent opportunity for them to be part of a very interesting challenge.
The Montérégie East area Air Cadet League committee will be conducting a regional Effective Speaking Competition in Valleyfield on March 17, 2019. 338 Squadron would like to present 2 participants for this quite interesting competition.
As a participant, our cadets have to prepare a 5-6 minutes speech to be delivered in front of a jury. The cadets have to chose amongst a list of themes to prepare their speech. Also, in the competition, our participants will be challenged to perform a 2 minute impromptu speech on a topic that will be presented to you at the competition. See Air Cadet League web site for more information. http://aircadetleague.com/effective-speaking-program/
Cadets interested in representing our squadron will have to give their names to 2Lt Nathalie Au tonight and report to Marie Victorin Community Center on Sunday February 17, 2019 at 13:00 for their first training session with a highly qualified instructor.
