Elliot and the other winners, who range in age between 10 and 18, will receive a travel package from Aug. 22-24 that includes: round-trip coach airfare to New York City for themselves and a guardian; two nights lodging at the New York Grand Hyatt Hotel; an honorary plaque; lunch with former New York City Mayor and current USTA Board Member David Dinkins; two tickets to a New York Mets baseball game against the Houston Astros; tickets to Broadway’s “The Lion King;” and tickets to 2008 Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day presented by Hess on August 23 at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day is the official kick-off for the 2008 U.S. Open that runs Aug. 25 – Sept. 7.

The USTA/NJTL Arthur Ashe Essay Contest was open to children 18 or younger. Each participant had to write an essay responding to the question “How do you exemplify Arthur Ashe?” A USTA sub-committee selected the winning essays based on the author’s knowledge of Arthur Ashe, message clarity, and writing style.
