    Be really nice to everyone. Homecoming queens are voted by their peers, so if everyone likes you, you have a good chance of being chosen. That means being nice, not fake. If you're nice to people but then talk about them behind their back, they still won't like you. Even if everyone else around you is saying bad things about someone, say something like, "Guys, I hate talking about people, could you please stop." This way, you're not being rude to them. Keep up the "ultra-sweet-can't-help-but-love-me" attitude and you'll see a difference.

    Be attractive and well groomed. Looks count. You don't have to be model-thin or anything, but do try to look attractive. Know what makes you look good, and what you should stay away from.

    Try enhancing your look. Your look should be natural without looking like you've tried too hard.

    Act naturally and in a relaxed manner. It gives off an air of self confidence, ease and chicness. That way you will know that people voted for you because they like who you are, not who you pretend to be.

    Flirt! You want to be the girl everyone loves and this includes guys. If you have a boyfriend though, don't flirt, that'll just get you a bad name. Regardless, remain equally friendly to everyone.

    Keep your grades up. Again, this will just get you respect and people will like you more. Remember that keeping your grades up is important so you'll even get to that homecoming. You may lose votes from those who consider those who slack academically "losers."

    Be yourself. In other words, don't let others tell you what or who to be. If you're shy, still be yourself but try to relax and be more outgoing. Learn to be assertive and confident.

    Be comfortable everywhere you go. Try to relax, be more outgoing, and have fun around people. There's no reason why you should be nervous - try to see everyone as friends and treat them equally.

    Be known. Get yourself involved in a lot of activities. That way, you know a bunch of people. Join other extra-curricular activities in your school like dance, basketball, soccer, etc.

    Hang out with everyone, unless they are into drugs and other bad things. Make an effort to get to know everyone, but don't become friends just to snag the homecoming crown. Be friendly, relaxed, and open.

    Be Gracious. Towards teachers, principals, kitchen staff, janitors, peers, everyone! You won't only be respected by your peers but also your elders.

    Do you need a date? No! To be the homecoming queen, you don't need the best date around. If you don't have a boyfriend to take you then go with friends, people will see you as being confident. And if someone asks you whom you aren't interested in going with, don't be rude turn them down with grace and gratitude.

    Campaign. You can't win, unless people know you want them to vote for you! Make your poster nice, readable, and not too flashy! An idea: Try doing something FOR the voters. Such as, giving out cupcakes to everybody at lunch, or, buy them hats that says vote for yourself. (But they don't have to be hats! they can be badges, jewelry,T-shirts, etc.) You could also stay simple and just say "Vote for me!" in the hallways.


  • Be really kind to others.
  • Smile as much as you can - even on bad days.
  • Be yourself. Dont pretend to be someone youre not. Everyone will like you better that way.
  • Don't act like you're better than every one, and don't put down the others who are also in the campaign.
  • Never use people to get you ahead. This leaves them feeling sore and they won't vote for you.
  • Practice talking and smiling in front of the mirror.
  • Get new clothes and keep your wardrobe up to date with the latest fashions.
  • Go to a hairstylist for a trendier hairstyle.
  • Learn the latest songs and dances.
  • Have a nice boyfriend that is well-liked at school. And you, too, must be well-liked at school. Having nice clothes and lots of money won't cut it.


  • You may spend less time in close relationships with people you care about; don't let them feel they're being snubbed. Just tell them how important this is to you and let them know they're still in your heart and you'll be back when the vote's in.
  • Don't take this too seriously. You'll seem desperate if you show that you care a whole lot about being homecoming queen. Remember that it's your last year and you want to make it memorable - not painful.
  • It's OK if you didn't win. Don't blame anyone if you lost. Don't beat yourself up. Just shrug your shoulders and start talking, dancing, playing around with your friends.
