Hottest Girls High School Contest

Shocking High School Contest Outrages Parents

Can you imagine finding out that your daughter's classmates were voting on how "hot" she is?

As The Seattle Times reports, a "hottest girls" contest at Issaquah High School is being promoted by an anonymously created "May Madness" Facebook page (which can only be viewed while logged into Facebook). School administrators and police have attempted to shut down the contest, which has occurred annually since 2009, but they don't know who the creators and promoters are.

Many students, too, are against the contest. As Issaquah School District spokeswoman Sara Niegowski shared, "A lot of them say this isn't what I'm about and I don't like the fact that our school is getting this reputation and I don't view females this way."

I have to agree with KorahKezar. We did this stuff 19 yrs ago too. The categories consisted of: Most likely to succeed boy/girl, most popular boy/girl, best looking boy/girl, most athletic boy/girl, best sense of humor boy/girl, best actor boy/girl, etc. We had a great time doing it!

Honestly I cannot see why this is soooo offensive, due to the fact that, when I went to high school people would vote on paper for the yearbook, the most beautiful, popular, etc. etc. How does having this on facebook change anything ? I am talking 19 years ago. So things have not changed just the way you view it.
