Olivia Gibbs started this petition to Wilson Senior High School Administration and

This year for the homecoming court, Wilson Senior High School will be having each club select two seniors (one male and one female) as their nominee for Homecoming.  While this is a great idea to try to get more people participating in the event, it is discriminatory because sports ARE NOT ALLOWED to participate in the nomination process and will not have representatives for their extracurricular on the homecoming court.  It is unfair to provide those who are completely apathetic about their club or extracurricular with an opportunity to represent the school and not allow the students who spend countless hours working tirelessly and ruthlessly representing our school and giving our school the reputation that it has now to run for homecoming king or queen.  In the past, students who may not have been in a club or extracurricular have won homecoming king or queen.  Past kings and queens may have also been in a sport- those in sports are no longer able to run.  Homecoming is about bringing together the entire Wilson Senior High School community and is about showing school spirit.  The definition of homecoming is quite literally the action of returning home- right now Wilson Senior High School does not feel like home!  Instead of the community being brought together, we are being pulled apart as many people are not in favor of the new way of running the homecoming courts and as we are forced to limit ourselves to only two members in each club while EXCLUDING sports (smaller clubs may not be able to participate as well).  The more popular clubs will also have the upper hand as many of the club's members will be voting for the nominee that was selected for the club as they will want their club nominee to win.  This will only cause the student body of Wilson Senior High School to be very closed-minded and focused more on popularity and less on the bringing together of the community.  Giving those who do not actually care about the school more of an opportunity to participate is causing inequality that shall not be tolerated! 

I propose that the method of running homecoming courts at Wilson Senior High School goes back to the way it was in the past- seniors from ANY activity can nominate themselves and make a video to showcase their personality, what extracurriculars they are in, if they are in any, possible talents that they have, and why they would be worthy of the Wilson community's votes.  Let's work together to strengthen the community of Wilson Senior Highschool and provide equality to all!
