Hi there friends! It’s the yearbook time of year. Maybe it’s because so many end of year things have been cancelled and so we’re putting it all online, or maybe I’ve just been on Twitter too much, but I’m seeing so much about prom, graduations, and yearbooks. It’s making me feel nostalgic. Also, heartbroken for seniors, but let’s try for some positivity here!
One of my favorite things in the yearbook were the superlative awards.
Full disclosure, my high school was so gigantic that yearbook superlatives were irrelevant. Superlatives for your extracurricular were everything. I was in band. I was the biggest band nerd three years in a row. It remains my crowning achievement in life.
Okay, okay, so they’re basically a huge popularity contest. But the idea is so fun! Who has the best smile? Who’s most likely to be president? Who is going on American Idol? (A kid I went to high school with was ACTUALLY on The Voice, so that’s cool!) So I thought it might be fun to make bookish superlatives a thing.
And if we’re going to do bookish superlatives, what better place to start than Harry Potter? Because if going to Leaky Con last year taught me anything, it’s that Potterheads are still obsessed and we LOVE dung like this.
So, for this week I am now accepting nominations! Write it how you’d like, first name, last name, both, nicknames, whatever. As long as I can figure out who you’re talking about, you’re good. I’ll pick the five most popular (or if there is no obvious most popular, the ones I think will be most fun!), and we can vote on them next week! Because I have to, you know, WRITE A POST, nominations are due by Thursday May 7 at midnight.
Be creative, have fun!
Nominations are closed, but you are welcome to vote here. 🙂
