Fifth grade students throughout the Hoosier State have the opportunity to raise awareness for missing children.
The Indiana State Police is once again partnering with the U.S. Department of Justice to promote the National Missing Children’s Day Poster Contest.
The contest, now in it’s 36th year, was started by President Ronald Reagan in conjunction with National Missing Children’s Day. The day is dedicated to encouraging parents, guardians, caregivers and all concerned individuals with the well-being of children to make child safety a priority.
As part of the poster contest, each student in the state is allowed to submit one poster through their school. There is no limit on the number of entries per school. All posters should be 8 1/2 by 14 inches large.
Artwork should reflect the theme “Bringing Our Missing Children Home.” That phrase must appear somewhere on the poster.
All posters must be submitted with a completed application before February 1st, 2019. For more information, you can click here.
