The 20 Best Pinewood Derby Photos of 2016

Check out the top 20 finalists in Cub Hub’s Pinewood Derby photo contest!

The photo contest was extended by two months to make sure most districts had an opportunity to share their finest Pinewood Derby moments. Now, the submissions are in and we’re down to the best of the best—just look at all the Cub Scout spirit!

This year’s stakes were high because the top five photos with the most Facebook likes will each win a $50 gift code to Though the voting period is now over, you can still head to the official Cub Scout Facebook page and “like” your favorite photos.

Catch a glimpse of the 20 finalists here:
