Civil Air Patrol's National Cadet Competition showcases the full range of challenges in cadet life experienced at the squadron-level and new areas of learning that are important to America.

Sixteen teams consisting of six cadets each compete for the USAF Chief of Staff Outstanding Team Championship Trophy. Each team was selected from the very best during previous state- and regional-level competitions. These extraordinary young people train for months and sometimes years to demonstrate their excellence in a wide range of activities in the arenas of leadership, aerospace, fitness and character. During the 3-day competition, cadets compete in physical challenges, test their knowledge of aviation and leadership, demonstrate the highest levels of precision and teamwork in posting the colors, and above all, cheer each other on in the spirit of teamwork.

To achieve its mission and vision, the National Cadet Competition program pursues the following goals:

1. Promote excellence in squadron-level cadet programs.
2. Promote individual excellence and learning in leadership, aerospace, fitness, and character.
3. Showcase today’s cadets as tomorrow’s aerospace leaders.
4. Achieve ever-increasing programmatic efficiency and return on investment.
