2012 MISSING CHILDREN'S DAY
May 25th was proclaimed National Missing Children's Day by President Ronald Reagan in 1983. The U.S. Department of Justice commemorates Missing Children's Day and each year since 2000, its Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention sponsors a National Missing Children's Day Poster Contest. The poster contest provides an opportunity for schools, law enforcement, and others to engage children in informative discussions about the problem of missing children and how to prevent it.
The following posters, submitted by Iowa 5th graders, were named as Honorable Mentions in this year's contest. Click on the image for a larger view and more information about the poster.
