Look how many teen movies have a day at which kids of a certain age are assigned their future role as part of a big ceremony:

The Giver
Harry Potter
City of Ember
The Hunger Games
Divergent

1) What's up with this trope? Does it resonate with teens or is it just a convenient plot device?

2) I figured there would be a wikipedia page that lists books/films with this plot device but I couldn't find one. Of course, it is a difficult thing to search for. I'd love to see a full list.
