Prom can be a very stressful time for students if they don't have a date lined up.
Aquin High School in Illinois has been using a lottery system since 1926 to decide who goes to prom with who.
Here's how it works: junior and senior boys are assigned their dates by a randomly drawing names. The girls wait in the school gym and the boys perform a skit to reveal who their date is.
The kids love it! High school senior Korey Korosec said, "It doesn't leave anybody out. Everyone's welcome to join, and no one's not going to have a date."
