MSEA's Got Talent!
Do you have what it takes to win our all-new MSEA’s Got Talent competition?
Here’s how it works: members with a special talent can enter to perform at MSEA’s Got Talent, held the night before this year’s MSEA Convention on Thursday, October 16 at 8:00 p.m. in the Ocean City Convention Center Ballroom. Singing, dancing, stand-up comedy, ventriloquism, magic, balloon animals—it all might be there. An audience full of members—and special “celebrity” judges like WBAL-TV's Tim Tooten and Senator Jim Mathias (D-Somerset, Wicomico, Worcester)—will help choose three finalists. Those finalists will go on to perform in front of all MSEA RA delegates the next morning.
The big winner will be chosen by delegates voting with their "Betty Bucks." Delegates can earn additional Betty Bucks by participating in PAC. The winner will be crowned during the final business session on Saturday afternoon. The winning talent will receive fabulous prizes, big-time bragging rights, and who knows—maybe even a record or movie deal.
