OJJDP invites fifth graders to participate in the 40th Annual National Missing Children's Day poster contest. The theme of this year’s poster contest is "Bringing Our Missing Children Home."
This contest creates an opportunity for teachers and school administrators, law enforcement personnel, and other child advocates to discuss the issue of missing and exploited children with youth, parents, and guardians and to promote child safety.
View and download the poster contest packet for additional information, including contest rules, submission deadlines, and contact information for state contest managers.
