To fulfill its cooperative, economic and financial education mission, your caisse is involved in helping youth become financially independent. Starting in elementary school, they can begin to learn sound savings habits through their school caisse.
The goal of the Art oratoire contest is to promote the educational development of local elementary school children by helping them acquire strategic skills such as public speaking, the power of persuasion and building solid arguments.
The final event of the 2019 Art oratoire contest was held on May 8, 2019, in the Grand Ballroom of Château Frontenac. A total of 27 young people from 11 elementary schools in the Quebec City area gave presentations on one of these themes: "If I had $10,000 to donate to an organization, which one would I choose and why?", "If I could build a robot, what would it accomplish?" or "If I had everything I dreamed of, what would I do to save the planet?".
The jury included of Karine Gagnon, journalist and columnist for Le Journal de Québec and author, Anne Marcotte, entrepreneur, host and television producer, columnist and speaker, Mylène Feuiltault, communications coordinator at the Théâtre du Trident and Guillaume Dumas, host of C'est encore mieux l'après-midi on ICI Radio-Canada Première in Quebec City. The competition is a great initiative to show that young people are talented communicators.
