Beginning September 6, 2017, the process to nominate players for the 41st Annual McDonald’s All American® High School Basketball Games gets underway. The 2018 McDonald’s All American Games will be played on Wednesday, March 28, 2018. The location of the 2018 Games will be announced in the coming weeks.
The player nomination process marks the start of the selection of the country’s top 24 boys and 24 girls high school basketball players, with final teams being named in January 2018.
The nomination period is open September 6, 2017 – December 1, 2017.
We need your help to ensure the nation’s top high school players are nominated. Being named a McDonald’s All American Nominee is an impressive honor; so if you have a deserving star senior player, please nominate her/him.
To assist you with the process, an online nomination form is available for those who are authorized to nominate players. As a reminder, the following people may nominate players:
- High school principal
- High school athletic director
- High school coach
- Member of the McDonald’s All American Games Selection Committee
Below please find the nomination form web address and login information to be shared with all of your member schools to ensure all qualified and deserving athletes are nominated.
Each student-athlete who is nominated and is in good academic standing will receive a certificate from McDonald’s acknowledging their nomination for the 2018 McDonald’s All American Games. This certificate will be sent to the high school that the candidate attends. A local McDonald’s Owner/Operator will contact the school administration to arrange a date to formally present the certificate to the athlete.

Finally, as you may know, the primary goal of the McDonald’s All American Games is to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®). Since their inception, the Games have benefitted RMHC through its network of local Chapters. At RMHC, programs like the Ronald McDonald House and Ronald McDonald Family Room provide comfort and compassion to families with sick children so they are fully supported and able to be a part of their children’s care.
