2018 winning poster

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is calling on all 5th graders, from across the state, to participate in 2019 National Missing Children's Day poster contest!

The annual contest, sponsored by the United States Department of Justice, strives to demonstrate America's united effort to bring missing children home safely, while highlighting the importance of proactive education programs. By entering at the state level, each participant will learn about the plight of missing children and, if selected as the national winner, will receive a free trip to Washington, D.C.

The poster contest provides teachers and parents with valuable tools to educate children, as students explore the contest's theme of 'Bring Our Missing Children Home.' The national ceremony will be held in late May 2019 and 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, where a panel will select a state winner to enter the national contest. The winner of Tennessee's 2018 contest was Anna McDowell, a student at Lakeside Park Elementary in Hendersonville. Her winning design appears on this news release.

Each entry requires the completion of an application packet and waiver, which can be downloaded on the TBI's website: www.tn.gov/tbi.
