Dr. Dan Cooper and The Pediatric Exercise Research Center at UC Irvine have teamed up with The Orange County Register to focus on ‘Kids at Play.’ The photo contest is open to amateur photographers in two categories (adults and youths 14 and younger). It is meant to highlight individual and team efforts of kids on the move, from their first steps to competitive sports. The special efforts of children with health challenges or disabilities also are welcomed. Photos must be in jpeg format and at least 1 mg in size. Deadline for submission is Sept. 3. Prizes, including sports camp scholarships and athletic shoes, will be awarded and winning photos will run in The Register. For instructions on submitting your photo, click
