When I was in high school, one of the most coveted awards a senior could receive was the highly selective “Best in Class Award”, which accompanied a full-page picture in the annual yearbook.

Such impressive titles as “Best Personality”, “Most Athletic”, “Most Likely to Succeed”, and “Sharpest” (which was a high school euphemism for best looking) were among the selective categories.
