In addition to these non-stop exciting events, this year’s edition includes the first ever “So You Want To Be A Soca Artiste” where contestants must submit a video singing a Soca song to be eligible to enter the competition, which will be held on the final night of Soca On The Seas. The competition will be judged by a panel of three celebrities and the winner will get an opportunity to perform with a Soca star at the grand last-lap event.

Director of Soca On The Seas, Juliana Fermin says that this event is more than just providing a unique vacation experience, hence she is pleased to give back to the young people of the Caribbean through the Soca On The Seas Scholarship Fund (SOSSF). Two thousand US dollars ($2,000.00USD) will be awarded to an eligible student pursuing a Bachelor of Science Degree in Music, Art, Fashion or Theatre. Juliana stated that “The creative industries is a dynamic sector that compliments and harnesses the vitality of the Tourism Industry and it is imperative that we support students in this arena who will be part of development.”
