Someone who feels the need to have a better score than anyone else in the known (and perhaps unknown) universe. If someone gets a higher score, the grade grubber seeks an immediate answer to the question of why s/he does not have the highest, bestest, prettiest score, most colorful star, or brightest happy face sticker, and thus proceeds to not shut up about it for 12 days until the next grade issue arises.
