On Thursday, April 4, S.E.A Board will host NSU’s Got Talent, a talent show for NSU students to show off their unique skills. This year, the event will feature 10 to 13 student acts. The annual event will run from 8:11 to 10:30 p.m. at the NSU Shark Fountain and is free and open to all NSU students to come out and support their fellow sharks.
The event starts at 8:11 to commemorate the creation of S.E.A Board which was created in 2011.
Julissa Gonzalez, the traditions chair of S.E.A Board this semester said, “NSU’s Got Talent is an annual event, and it is open to all NSU students, undergraduate and graduate. [Some students will also be performing] with non-NSU students. We have bands, rapper duets, a magic act, poetry, art and more. It’s open to any talent you have. It’s open to anyone, and I love that about it.”
The event draws inspiration from the popular television music competition franchise, the X-Factor.
Gonzalez said, “We try to [bring] it to NSU with our own little twist. We have a big X we are planning to use again.”
There will be monetary prizes for the top three contestants. First place will receive $500, second place will receive $300 and third place will receive $100.
Gonzalez said, “You can use that money to put in a registered student organization’s account to help build up an RSO. You can also get it in the form of an NSU bookstore giftcard or a Barnes & Noble gift card.”
For more information about how earnings will be awarded, students can refer to the rulebook, located on the S.E.A Board page on SharkHub. The winners will be decided by a panel of judges made up of individuals from campus life, PVA, faculty and more.
Additionally, there will be popcorn and snacks at the event. If students have any questions about the event, they can contact Julissa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
