This is a reminder that all cadets across Canada have an opportunity to share their artistic talent in celebrating the upcoming 75th anniversary of the ACLC by producing an 11" x 17" poster and submitting it in a nationwide contest. As added incentive, there is prize money at the National level for 1st ($500), 2nd ($300), and 3rd ($200) place.
Individual squadrons are to judge their cadets' submissions, and send the winning poster to the Ontario Provincial Committee for further judging. In Ontario, the deadline for submission of posters originally set as June 30 has been extended to Oct 15, 2015 in order to benefit from the summer months. (In the event your squadron has completed the judging already, please send the poster in).
Judging of all submissions received from Ontario squadrons will take place at the AGM scheduled for 31 October. The winning cadet from the Ontario Provincial Committee’s entries will have an opportunity to attend the national Air Cadet Leadership Symposium in Ottawa (along with 5 other selected Ontario cadets and a total of 40 from across Canada) in November 18-22 – travel and accommodation expenses paid.
The winning poster will be then be submitted to Ottawa to be judged at the National Air Cadet League Semi Annual Meeting in mid-November.
