The 2018 Two Harbors High School Homecoming marked the beginning of a new tradition.

After years of waning interest, the school chose not to have students vote on individual students for homecoming royalty. Instead, the school held class competitions throughout Spirit Week that included themed dress-up days like "Agate Pride Day," "Twins Day" and a "White Out," and each class accumulated points for the number of students participating.

The school held a pep rally Thursday, Oct. 4, as a culmination to the Spirit Week festivities. The senior class was declared the first Spirit Week champion.
