The Santa Monica Elks concluded its annual Hoop Shoot Contest Saturday, Janaury 6th, with more than 500 boys and girls in attendance at games in Santa Monica and Malibu.

Each contestant gets ten shots for scores. After a 15-minute break, 15 more shots are taken for scores.

There are two different distances and four different age groups. The first-, second- and third-place winners each get a trophy.
