The 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. Squadrons from each of Civil Air Patrol’s 52 wings compete at the wing-level for the chance to compete at the region level before advancing to the National Cadet Competition. Cadets compete in tests of their leadership and aerospace education knowledge, drill and ceremonies, customs and courtesies, physical fitness, and personal character.

The members of the Augusta team are:

  • Cadet Colonel Brandon Sweitzer

  • Cadet Second Lieutenant Ryan Kinkar

  • Cadet Chief Master Sergeant Andrew Howard

  • Cadet Chief Master Sergeant Ivan Richardson

  • Cadet Senior Master Sergeant Isabel Dobbins

  • Cadet Airman First Class Oscar Acosta

Augusta faced off against squadrons from Cartersville and Gainesville, with the latter’s Riverside Cadet Squadron winning Second Place. Riverside will join Augusta for the Southeast Region competition this spring, against teams from Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Puerto Rico.
