The Iowa Department of Public Safety Missing Person Information Clearinghouse is now accepting posters for the 2012 National Missing Children's Day Poster Contest. All Iowa 5th Graders are encouraged to participate. The winner of the statewide competition will be entered into the National competition. Entry deadline for statewide competition is February 28, 2012.

Rules for the poster contest are available by clicking on the links below. Along with creating the poster, 5th graders will need to fill out the Poster Contest Application, which will tell us a little about themselves and their poster.

We look forward to your poster submissions. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at (515) 725-6036 or by e-mail at
