National Missing Children’s Day poster contest open to fifth-graders

The New Jersey State Police Missing Persons Unit is facilitating the 37th U.S. Department of Justice’s National Missing Children’s Day Poster Contest.

The nationwide contest encourages fifth-graders to participate in the campaign to promote awareness among teachers, parents, and children and engage them in discussions about safety.

This year’s theme is “Bringing Our Missing Children Home,” and fifth-graders from across the New Jersey are encouraged to create a poster. Posters must be created by hand and should be original in design.

The Missing Persons Unit will review all submissions and select one to represent New Jersey during the national competition.

Submissions must be made by Feb. 1, 2020 to:

New Jersey State Police
