Formerly known as the Annual Arthur Ashe Essay & Art Contest, the sponsors are now calling it the 17th Annual Arthur Ashe Essay and Photo Contest.

The competition asks students to address the statement:

Charlie Pasarell is one of the Founders of National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL). NJTL has impacted millions of kids throughout the country over the past 46 years. The game of tennis serves as a mechanism to break down barriers and bring people of diverse backgrounds together. This was true in Charlie Pasarell’s and Arthur Ashe’s era, and still holds true today. So we ask:
Who is a local NJTL hero in your community that resembles what Mr. Pasarell has done through NJTL?
