A Prom Queen or homecoming queen is a woman who is elected to be, as the name suggests, queen of the prom. She becomes Prom Queen by her fellow students casting votes and electing their queen. Although the Prom Queen is usually the most poplular and prettiest girl, any student from class is eligible to be voted.
The prom queen is partnered with a prom king who is elected similarly. They both have a Prom King and Queen dance to celebrate their election.
