The U.S. Department of Justice / Office of Juvenile and Delinquency Prevention's Child Protection Division sponsors this annual contest for fifth-grade students nationwide. The contest educates children about child safety through developing artwork that represents America's united goal to bring missing children home.
Wisconsin's Clearinghouse for Missing & Exploited Children & Adults develops and coordinates the process for the statewide poster contest. The poster created by the state winner then will compete nationally. The winner of the national contest will fly FREE to Washington, DC, to attend the annual National Missing Children's Day Ceremony and to accept a certificate and U.S. savings bond.
