A Michigan High School Drops The Homecoming Queen Title In Favor Of An “Excellence Award”

The student council at Chelsea High School in Michigan announced they will be replacing the homecoming queen award with an excellence award based on academic, social and emotional attributes.

In a video the student council, staff and multiple students made explained that due to the bullying they have decided to replace the award. 

Students said the award pitted nominees against each other and caused students to be hurtful.

The excellence award will be based on integrity, academics, creativity among other things.

The school, for now, still has a King and Queen at their upcoming Winter formal.
