Is this the new 'participation trophy'?

A school district in Indiana is considering doing away with having the highest scorer in each school earn the title of ‘Valedictorian’ in exchange for a new system that would recognize more students for their academic achievements.

While school administration think this is the way to go avoid some students taking courses that aren’t really a good fit for them simply so they could get a good grade, others think this is the equivalent of handing out a participation trophy!
