National Arthur Ashe Essay Contest Winner from YTA
One of our YTA students, 10 year old Makda Dawit, who plays at Mosswood Park in Oakland, won the USTA national Arthur Ashe Essay Contest (one of ten winners in the US). Makda gets an all expenses paid trip to the US Open with one of her parents to receive her prize. Having YTA students write an essay on Arthur Ashe each year is one of YTA's four core projects our kids do as part of our College Pathways program.
