How is prom king and queen elected?

As the question states...
I think there might be different ways on how prom king and queen are elected...
Is it elected from the 'nominees' from those boys and girls who WANTS to become a prom king and queen or is it generally vote for anyone who thinks should become a prom king or queen without any 'nominees'?
or how is it elected from your proms?

Hi there.

TSR is a UK based forum so I may move you're thread to the international forum if that's okay? :smile: This is just so you can get more appropriate responses as I don't think prom king and queen is a UK custom. :s-smilie:

We didn't have prom queen and king, I don't think that aspect got imported from the US as much as the rest of it did

I’ve never heard of the concept until I came across your thread.

Definitely not traditional but I went to school in the UK and we had a king and belle of the ball thing. Is that similar?

I don't remember how it was elected though. I do think you can only elect from a group of nominees
It was based on who was the best dressed or, in other words, who looked cute together as king and queen, in my school. (UK)

There were no nominees. Just who everyone thought was supposed to be king and queen.

usually we have a “prom” at the end of year 11 as that’s the end of GCSE’s and also at the end of year 13, but it’s really not a big affair like in the USA, also we don’t do prom king or queen. in my school we did a silly powerpoint presentation of “most likely to” with people in our class

Yes this, we had school dances, which were pretty informal, basic and generally in one of the schools gym halls or whatever, it wasn't the sort of thing people hired clothes or cars for etc (but I'm seeing this start to creep in more)
When i go to high school and go to prom i'm going out with my crush and we will become prom king and queen
