Aerospace Education Excellence Award
This award is presented to units that participate in an activity-based voluntary aerospace education program, CAP's Aerospace Education Excellence (AEX) Award Program. The unit AEO or the unit commander enroll in the program and ensure cadets or senior members participate in six aerospace activities and an additional two-hour activity (such as building and launching rockets or taking a field trip to an airport or air/space museum). When the program is completed, the senior member who enrolled in the program completes the award report, located in eServices. Reports are submitted to National Headquarters. Units completing the requirements are presented with a commemorative plaque and participants receive an AEX certificate. Conducting these activities foster group interaction and socialization, and can generate great excitement for aerospace education within the unit. Click for more information about CAP's AEX Program.
