2017 Provincial Effective Speaking Competition

On Saturday, April 8, the Air Cadet League of Canada –  Quebec and Ottawa Valley  Provincial Committee (QOVPC) held the Provincial Effective Speaking Competition at Université Laval. The event brought together the 9 finalist candidates from the regional competitions.

The Air Cadet League Effective Speaking Competition is a competition that takes place at all levels (local, regional, provincial and national) and its objective is to allow cadets and cadets to improve their presentation in public, to gain greater self-confidence and to communicate their messages more effectively. WO 2 Sabrina Gallant Monette, winner of the provincial competition, has the merit of representing Quebec and Ottawa Valley at the national competition to be held on June 15, 2017 at the National Convention.

The Effective Speaking Competition is divided into two parts. First, all candidates must present a prepared speech of 5 to 6 minutes on a topic that they select themselves from the themes announced by the Air Cadet League of Canada. For the second part, they had to present an impromptu speech lasting from 2 to 3 minutes. The theme of this speech was the same for all candidates and they only had 3 minutes to prepare. This year, the theme of the impromptu speech was: Tell us about your passions other than the Air Cadets. It will be said that all the cadets participating gave us exceptional performances. Congratulations to all applicants!

Of course, this event could not have been possible without Université Laval’s generosity, the involvement of our dedicated volunteers and the participation of our invited judges, Mr. Steve Guillemette and Mr. Simon Hébert. Also noteworthy is the participation of FSgt. Alice Hardy, attached to 921 Optimist L’Ancienne-Lorette Squadron, as Master of Ceremonies.
