Every teenager residing in the United States will tell you that being a prom king/queen is a pretty big deal. Though as anyone would expect being crowed the king and queen has a lot to do with popularity. But there are many instances where students have deliberately voted for unusual but equally deserving candidates.
Let’s take a look at some of them.
1. Jacob Kiefor, The Autistic Boy Who Had His Wish Granted.
18 year old Jacob Kiefor was a student in Lake Central High School, Indiana who had his wish to be a prom king fulfilled. Jacob had down syndrome, but that didn’t stop him from taking part in and winning the title. At the prom, not a single vote was cast against him.
2. Maka Brown, 16 Year Old Creates School History.
Maka Brown is a 16 year old teenager in Salt Lake City, Utah. And there is nothing unusual about her winning the prom queen as well. At least at first glance. See, Maka is actually the first transgender to have ever contested and won prom queen title in her school. School authorities and her fellow students said that they were more than happy with her decision and had their support the whole time.
