"We believe in fostering student leadership and creative ideas expression over our students' four years with us," a school official explained.
North Farmington High School has kept a pretty interesting annual tradition going since 2014. Every year, the Michigan school allows its seniors to dress up in creative and over-the-top costumes for their student ID photos, and the kids take it upon themselves to deliver the absolute best recreations of characters from pop culture, movies, memes, and games. Many of them also post their side-by-side comparison photos on social media using the hashtag #NFID and their graduating year. #NFID22 photos arrived earlier this month and the class of 2022 absolutely did not disappoint.

"This started in 2014 with the Senior Class of 2015. They wanted to have a fun way to bring their class together, build school spirit, express themselves, and have fun," Principal Greene told Bored Panda during an earlier email interview. "A number of student leaders met with myself and a few staff members and we negotiated out some principles to guide student decisions in choosing a costume and how to ensure that the ID photos still supported a safe and secure school environment. It just began to grow from there to where it is today." Principal Greene explained that students' parents "love this tradition on the whole" even though questions about security pop up from time to time.

"We are able to explain the guidelines we use as students choose their popular culture costumes and take their picture so that they are still identifiable," the educator said. "We believe in fostering student leadership and creative ideas expression over our students' four years with us. The Senior Class dressing up as popular characters for their IDs is an occasion meant for the class to build community and identity among themselves as well as bring some fun and joy to the school year."
