WASHINGTON (PIX11) — It’s being dubbed the ultimate high school hotness tournament and it has a lot of parents fuming at a Washington state school.

According to reports, the online tournament called “May Madness” ranks female students at Issaquah High School, determining whether they are hot or not. Male students at the school are behind the contest and voting.

As voting gets underway, female students are reportedly encouraged to “look their finest.”

Despite attempts of shutting the student-led contest down – which has been running for the past 5 years – school officials have failed because the tournament isn’t held on school grounds.

Issaquah District spokeswoman Sarah Niegowski told FOX News in a statement that the tournament’s organizers are very savvy.

“These are pretty smart folks behind this,” she said. “They know their First Amendment rights. They’re very quiet about who it is and the group behind it.”
