    I remember being nominated in high school and thinking it was the coolest thing. Someone noticed that I had done a lot of theatre and played sports. Someone thought I was cool enough to be on this list. Looking back, I think that was just my insecurity speaking and me needing affirmation that I belonged. It is clear that times have changed and the internet has allowed us to label people on a daily basis (and to do so anonymously). I find myself split down the middle here, trapped between fond memories of my own high school career and seeing this generation living a very different reality. I do agree that it is either all or nothing. Either award people for all the things, or save the awards for the serious moments and high achievements and leave the lists and the popularity contests for the chap snat!
