Ben Queen Wins Trip to the 2009 Super Bowl as National Winner in Canon/NFL Amateur Photo Contest
In January of 2009, Ben's photo "The Longest Yard" (seen above) was selected in a nationwide contest to be the winner of the "2009 National Amateur Photo Contest" sponsored by USA Canon and the NFL's Professional Football Hall of Fame. The theme of the 2009 contest was "Why do we love football?" and more than 10,000 photos were submitted. Ben's photo featured five Pee Wee league football players from Harrison County.
For winning the contest, Ben received a complete four-person travel package and tickets to the 2009 Super Bowl in Tampa, Florida. His photo will be officially unveiled at the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Canton, Ohio on July 31, 2009. The photo will hang permanently in the Hall of Fame.
