Canon U.S.A. Inc., of Lake Success, has chosen two winners in its national youth football photography contest titled "Why Do You Love Football?"

Canon's partner is the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The company considered more than 6,000 entries.

The grand prize winners were Heidi Yowell, 45, of La Habra, Calif.; and Michael Pronzato, 17, of Warrington, Pa.

Each has won a trip for four to attend the Super Bowl, and a separate trip to the 2011 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Celebration, to be held this summer.

The winning photos will be on show for a year at the Hall of Fame.

Yowell's photo, "Last Game," shown above, was of her son and her husband.

"Her son, a third-year linebacker, wore pink socks during the game to help promote breast cancer awareness," Canon said.

Pronzato's photo, "Give a Full Effort for the Touchdown", was taken at a high-school football game.

"He says there is a chance for a great picture every time Desmon Peoples (subject of the photo and Pronzato's friend) runs the ball," Canon said.
