There will be no more homecoming queens at Chelsea High School. And it's not the administration that came up with the idea.

According to MLive.com, the student council has decided to do away with the title, due to the title being outdated and the "negative experiences" (bullying and pitting girls against each other) that came with it. According to the teacher who acts as the Student Council adviser, "When you put a sash and a crown on someone, you are implicitly saying this person represents what we value at the school."

Starting this year, instead of electing a homecoming queen, the students will give one of their fellow students (male or female) an "excellence" award, to be presented at the Homecoming game next Friday night.

Here's the story.
