ID1164336_20190824_Foundation_NP2_9757The 22nd Annual USTA Foundation NJTL Essay Contest presented by Deloitte launched on January 2, 2020. Entries must be submitted by a currently registered NJTL chapter. Each NJTL chapter can set a local deadline for entries. NJTL Chapters were emailed 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 enter.

The NJTL Essay Contest presentd by Deloitte is a widely acclaimed educational tool. NJTL participants are asked to write essays answering a thought-provoking question requiring research and analysis.  Thousands of entries are received each year and 10 national winners (one boy and one girl from each age group) receive an all-expense paid trip to New York City to participate in Arthur Ashe Kids' Day at the US Open and to accept their awards at the NJTL Essay Awards Luncheon.  

The question for the 2020 essay contest is, "Everyone measures success differently. How do you strive for success in terms of your character development, education, or tennis?" 

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.

NJTL chapters with questions about the 2020 NJTL Essay Contest presented by Deloitte, should email njtl@usta.com.
