McDonalds All-American Game.gif

The McDonald's All-American Game refers to each of the all-star basketball games played each year for boys' and girls' high school basketball graduates. Consisting of the top American players, each team plays a single exhibition game after the conclusion of the high school basketball season in an East vs. West format. As part of the annual event, there are the slam dunk contests, the three-point competitions, and overall timed skills competitions. The boys game has been contested annually since 1978, and the girls game has been played each year since it was added in 2002.

The McDonald's All-American designation actually began in 1977 with the selection of the inaugural team. That year, the All-Americans played in an All-star game against a group of high school stars from the Washington D.C. area.[1] The following year, the McDonald's game format of East vs. West was begun with a boys contest. In 2002, with the addition of a girls contest, the current girl-game / boy-game doubleheader format began.

The McDonald's All-American Team is the best-known of the American high school basketball All-American teams. Having the designation of McDonald's All-American instantly brands a player as one of the top high school players in the United States.

The teams are sponsored by McDonald's, the fast-food chain. Proceeds from the annual games go to local Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC®) and their Ronald McDonald House® programs.
