The USTA Foundation NJTL Essay Contest presented by Deloitte is open. NJTL participants are asked to write essays answering a thought-provoking question requiring research and analysis.

The question for the 2022 Essay Contest is, "Mayor David Dinkins was convinced that tennis instills confidence, character, sportsmanship and teamwork. He envisioned the sport as a vehicle to drive you closer to your dreams. Do you agree that tennis develops these positive
qualities? Are there other skills or positive aspects gained from playing tennis? What are your dreams? How can tennis help you achieve those dreams and develop meaningful relationships?"

The contest entry began on April 6, 2022 and will end at 12:00 PM EDT on July 25, 2022. NJTL Chapters are subject to the terms of the 2022 USTA Foundation NJTL Essay Contest, and will confirm the same upon essay submission into the NJTL Chapter Portal. Each NJTL chapter can set a local deadline for applications. NJTL Chapters will have access to materials to help them promote this opportunity for NJTL youth. NJTL youth who wish to participate must contact their local NJTL chapter for more information and to apply. Chapter leaders can login to the NJTL Chapter Portal. If you have any questions, please email njtl@usta.com.

 

The National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) network is a nationwide network of community tennis organizations seeking to develop the character of young people through tennis and education. NJTLs are unique because they offer a variety of on-court programming and also educational and life skill components designed to enhance a child’s overall development.
 

Founded in 1969, this growing network of tennis providers share similar values, ideals and goals by reaching out to those who may not otherwise have the opportunity to play tennis, instilling in youngsters the values of leadership and academic excellence, and by giving all kids the opportunity to fully develop their tennis skills so they can derive a lifetime of enjoyment from the sport.

Deloitte, one of the world's largest professional services organizations, has become the first-ever presenting sponsor of the USTA Foundation NJTL Essay Contest . Deloitte has joined forces with the USTA Foundation to help under-resourced youth to advance their education and fulfill their potential.
