The Theme for the 2018 MAWG CAP History Exhibit Contest is;

"Our Story:  The Squadrons of Massachusetts Wing"

 

1.  Teams will conduct focused research and create an exhibit highlighting up to three critical moments
in their squadron's history that helped to make it what is is today

2.  Squadrons are encouraged to conduct oral histories with members of their squadron as a part of this exhibit. Oral Histories should be done in accrdance with CAPP-6. If you have questions about conducting oral histories, please contact Capt Joshua Bell at joshua.bell@mawg.cap.gov or by phone at 401-400-2488.

3.  Completed oral histories should be sent to Capt Joshua Bell at joshua.bell@mawg.cap.gov and he will forward them to the appropriate historian at the Wing and National levels.

4.  This contest is for cadets only.

5.  Squadrons may only submit one display for judging.

6.  Contest rules are below.

 

Squadrons are the backbone of Civil Air Patrol. Personnel at this level are the ones who help realize CAP’s three missions of Aerospace Education, Emergency Services, and Cadet Programs. Each squadron has a unique story and experiences. When thinking about our home units, there is much to be proud of.

Teams will research and present on up to three moments in their squadron’s history that helped shape the squadron into the unit that it is today. Teams are encouraged to conduct oral histories with their current and past members. Teams should prepare a 5 minute presentation explaining their topic’s relationship to the theme.  

Exhibits should be able to be accommodated on or within the area of one (1) 3x6 foot table (18 sq ft).
