It's that time of year again  -- teens at high schools across the country are thinking about who'll accompany them to prom.

Given the looming fear of rejection, asking someone to prom can be a BIG deal. As you may have already heard, however, a high school in Illinois has taken away that fear by assigning dates by lottery. Yep ... you read that right. The idea is to make sure everybody gets to go to the prom, and the kids at Aquin High School in Fremont, Ill., are all for it.

The school's time-honored tradition started in 1926 for the school, which has fewer than 100 students.

What do you think of their idea? Should schools pick the students prom dates?
