The McDonald's All American Games are nationally recognized as the premier showcase for the top high school basketball talent in the country. Annually, 24 boys and 24 girls are selected from a pool of more than 2,500 nominees nationwide.

Since 1977, more than 800 players have competed in the McDonald's All American Games, forming an elite list that reads like a "Who's Who" in basketball history. McDonald's All American(R) athletes include NBA greats Kevin Garnett, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony. Former female All Americans include Seimone Augustus and NCAA stars Ivory Latta, Tina Charles and Candace Parker who made history at the 2004 McDonald's All American Games when she became the first woman to win the slam dunk contest at the POWERade(R) Jam Fest.
