ART CONTEST WINNERS
April 9, 2018
USTA Texas is proud to announce the six winners of the fourth annual National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) Art Contest. The winners of this year’s contest ranged from ages 11-18 and were selected from a pool of over 750 entrants.
The competition was open to all residents of Texas who were under the age of 18 and active in their local NJTL chapter. This year, students were asked to “create a work of art of you and your favorite piece of tennis gear.” Each of the six winners received a plaque with the grand prize winner earning the chance to win tickets to the U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championships in Houston.
The six winners of the 2018 USTA Texas NJTL Art Contest were selected in the following categories:
Our grand prize winner this year is 12-year-old Feryal Naheed from Dallas Tennis and Education Academy. Naheed has been chosen to receive four (4) tickets to this year’s U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship in Houston. She will be conducting the coin toss for the final match on Sunday, April 15th at River Oaks Country Club in Houston.
The NJTL Art Contest is an opportunity for participants to express their love for tennis and their growth through the NJTL program in an artistic way. This contest helps participants in preparation for the upcoming USTA Foundation Essay Contest where players use experiences through tennis to tell a story. The NJTL program was established in 1969, with the mission to develop the character of young people through participation in tennis. The theme of this year’s competition was to showcase when tennis makes them happiest.
