Effective Speaking

What is it?

Effective speaking helps cadets increase their self-confidence, improve their ability to reason, and organize and express their ideas. At each level of competition, cadets are required to present a prepared speech of 5 to 6 minutes and an impromptu speech of 2 to 3 minutes. Topics for the prepared speeches are chosen annually by the Air Cadet League’s National ES Committee based on suggestions provided by the previous year’s competitors. These same topics are then used at each level of competition throughout the year. A list of these topics may be found by following the link to the Air Cadet League website below.

Some important dates:

  • Squadron Competition: TBD (end of Dec/Beginning of Jan)
  • Area Competition: TBD (Mid-February)
  • Provincial Competition: Saturday, 27 April 2019 @ Mohawk College
