What Did We Do This Year With Our Community?
TRAINING IN COMMUNICATION: The purpose of this program is to provide young people training in communication and leadership skills, and practical experiences to develop those skills. The TIC Program is composed of two parts: a) Communications Academy, and b) Student Oratorical Contest. The TIC targets 9th – 12th Grade students to compete for scholarships and awards. The 2019 theme is: "Justice for all . . . Is American Justice Blind or Oblivious to Certain Youth Populations?"
This year the Columbus Area Chapter winner is Justus Brown who competed on May 4, 2019. With this win, he competed at the Region V level on June 15, 2019. Although he gave his competitors a good competition, Justus won second place.
CACBIG at a glance for 2019
2019 for CACBIG has been expansive and mind broadening.
CACBIG started the year in February with inviting students to participate in the TIC program. The competition was held on May 4, 2019 and presented Justus Brown as the chapter winner. The winner competed at the Regional level and obtained second place. Kudos to Justus for stepping up and representing the students of the community.
In April 2019, the chapter presented a program on "How to use the new Voting Machine." This was a community outreach opportunity to assist citizens in voting on the machines Ohio has instituted. Due to popular demand, a second session was held on June 1, 2019. Thank you to the Whitehall Library for the use of their room to hold session.
In May 15, 2019, CACBIG held an Open House in conjunction with providing a learning session on Resume writing and using USA Jobs. On May 18, 2019, CACBIG and FEW/FWP (Federally Employed Women/Federal Women's Program) joined forces to participate in the 2019 Komen Walk for the Cure.
More to come to have a great finish to our year!
