Tennessee Bureau of Investigation accepting entries for 2013 National Missing Children’s Day Poster Contest

 

Tennessee Bureau of InvestigationNashville, TN – The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is calling all 5th graders from across the state to participate in the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) 2013 National Missing Children’s Day poster contest by entering at the state level for a chance to be selected as the national winner and awarded a free trip to Washington D.C.

The purpose of the contest is to demonstrate America’s united effort to bring missing children home safely, while highlighting the importance of proactive education programs.

The poster contest provides teachers and parents with tools to educate children about safety and the prevention of child abductions. It also allows for peer education and students can explore the importance of the contest’s theme “Bring Our Missing Children Home.” The National Missing Children’s Day ceremony will be held on or around May 25th, 2013.

The ceremony will be a time to recognize people who work to bring missing children home safely and remember the children who remain missing.

Fifth graders in Tennessee can enter the poster contest by submitting them to TBI who will then pick a state winner to enter into the national contest. The winner of the Tennessee’s 2012 contest was 10-year-old Tia Shipp from A.B. Hill Elementary School in Memphis (see the winning artwork on this news release).
