Nearly every high school and college in America has a football team. Each of those teams designates one game each year to be its "homecoming game." In addition to the contest on the gridiron is a competition between the school's classes to produce the best float to parade around the field at half-time. The winning float is usually produced either by the school's juniors or seniors. ArtLex believes the freshmen Aggies of 2002-2003 produced the best homecoming float in the entire USA this year.
