For high schoolers, there is perhaps no night more exciting than homecoming. Former and current students gather together to celebrate their school and cheer on its football team as the side takes on a rival squad from a local school. And oftentimes the game will feature a very special presentation during the half-time break.
That is because the gap in gameplay presents the perfect opportunity to crown the school’s homecoming king and queen. During this time-honored tradition, nervous nominees typically walk across the football field dressed to the nines in front of the peers who have voted for them. Then an emcee announces who will be walking away with the titles – and the bling.
