Becoming Prom King and Queen

Find out how to become the king and queen of your prom!
Prom King and Queen

If you not only want to look like a prom king or queen, but also want to be the king or queen of your prom, then read on to find out what it takes to get the job done!

It's Not Just About Popularity

At one time, prom may have been a big popularity contest where the best-looking guy and girl were crowned king and queen, but things have changed and it's no longer just about who has the most friends and who wears the coolest clothes. Many schools require you to get good grades, participate in extra-curricular activities and be a well-rounded student in order to run for prom royalty. So how can you become a candidate? It's easy - someone has to nominate you and another person has to second that nomination. Then you can start your campaign and run, similar to how people run for class president.

Nice Guys Don't Finish Last

It's great to be pretty and popular, but mean girls aren't going to score any points with the classmates. The same goes for guys! It's important to be genuinely nice (no one likes a fake) and get to know everyone. Don't just hang out with one group of people, like the jocks and cheerleaders or the drama club, but widen your circle of friends. That way, more people will know who you are and give you their vote!

All Eyes on You

Winners of the coveted crown will have a moment to shine in the spotlight as you give your acceptance speech and dance with each other in the middle of the dance floor. Remember to thank all of your classmates and teachers for supporting you!

I'm not trying to be rude...but don't do the hair thing. Just don't. I know a lot of guys and they don't like flirty girls. Just be friend first and if he seems interested, and if you are ready for it, talk to your parents about going a little farther. One again, I'm not trying to be mean, but I just want you to be safe ;)

Just casually walk up to him, say Hi, look your best on that day. i mean, it can't hurt. Talk to him! Hang out! Have lunch. Flip your hair when he's looking your way. Be nice, not pushy.     Wish you luck!  :hippie :D
