The Justin Wynn Leadership Academy 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament will be held on Saturday, March 5, 2016 in Beardsley Gym at Evanston Township High School.  The co-ed tournament is for grades 3, 4, 5 and 6.  A portion of the proceeds from this year’s tournament will go to help support Evanston Scholars, a non-profit organization that improves college access for a diverse group of Evanston students.
The Justin Wynn Fund was established in 1987 in loving memory of Justin Michael Wynn, who died in a swimming accident when he was nine years old.  From this tragedy, the Wynn family and friends founded The Justin Wynn Fund and later the Justin Wynn Leadership Academy with the mission “to celebrate and nurture youth leaders by helping them develop a deep sense of self and responsibility  for improving their communities.”
For more details about the tournament and to register, please go to www.wynners.org.  Online registration closes on February 27th. Assuming there is space, there will also be team walk-in registration the day of the tournament.
