Little League volunteers from across the United States send in entries that are evaluated at Little League International and three winners are selected. This is the 12th year the contest has been conducted.

The three winning photographs, selected from more than 200 entries, will be on display at the Peter J. McGovern Little League Museum, with the top photographs from the past nine contests.

Voting is conducted by part- and full-time employees at Little League International in South Williamsport. Each of the winning photos can be viewed on the Internet at Little League’s website: www.LittleLeague.org.

Little League Baseball and Softball is the world’s largest organized youth sports program, with nearly 2.6 million players and one million adult volunteers in every U.S. state and scores of other countries.
