For those of you unfamiliar with Cadet Competition, below is an excerpt from CAPP 52-4, the National Cadet Competition Curriculum Guide (additional details on Cadet Competition can be found within the CAPP):

    1. Mission. The CAP National Cadet Competition program showcases the full range of challenges in cadet life experienced at the squadron level, and new areas of learning that are important to America.

    2. Vision. Squadrons and individual cadets motivated to excel in all facets of the CAP Cadet Program. c. Program Goals. To achieve its mission and vision, the NCC program pursues the following goals:

(1) Promote excellence in squadron-level cadet programs. NCC’s contribution in this goal area is measured in two ways. First, total cadet participation, system-wide, is measured year-to-year, using the 2010 data set as the initial baseline. Second, the average annualized cadet promotion rate for participating squadrons will be compared with the non-participating squadrons’ average.

(2) Promote individual excellence and learning in leadership, aerospace, fitness, and character. This is measured through end-of-activity self and peer assessments, with a goal of achieving an average score of 4.0 or better out of 5.0.

(3) Showcase today’s cadets as tomorrow’s aerospace leaders. This public relations goal is measured quantitatively through media mentions and impressions, year-to-year, and qualitatively through partnerships maintained or strengthened with aerospace industry, senior military officials, educational leaders, and other natural stakeholders.

(4) Achieve ever-increasing programmatic efficiency and return on investment. This goal is measured in terms of the budget performance for appropriated and corporate funds expended at the national level, and through feedback from teams and the NCC staff’s after action reports

Looking forward to a great Cadet Competition!
