2014 Arthur Ashe Essay Contest National Winners

The 16th Annual Arthur Ashe Essay and Art Contest was sponsored annually by the USTA/NJTL. It asks USTA/NJTL participants to explain in 300 words or less, draw a picture or create artwork, why Arthur Ashe is a tennis legend. NJTL participants were asked to write, or draw, your response to the question, 

Arthur Ashe used his time and skills to impact others -how have you used your time and skills learned through tennis and educational programming to impact the lives of those around you?”

Winners received a trip to New York City that included attending Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day at the U.S. Open, attend a professional sporting event, see a Broadway show and receive a special award at a luncheon held in their honor.
