Pasadena Police Supports USDOJ's Poster Contest
"Please join us in support of the U.S. Department of Justice's National Missing Children's Day Poster Contest," says Chief Sanchez. "The more awareness we bring to this issue, the fewer children we will have to search for. It is so very important that parents and their children talk about safety and to that end I encouarage community involvement in projects such as this."
This fall, many state Clearinghouses and AMECO member organizations will be launching their state missing children's day poster contests. Please get your schools and community involved in the mission to ensure our children are safe from harm by participating in the 2011 contest.
The purpose of the contest is to demonstrate America's united effort to bring missing children home safely, while highlighting the importance of awareness education programs. Information about the contest and how to contact your state manager can be found on the following OJJDP Web site: http://ojjdp.ncjrs.gov/programs/postercontest/2011/materials.html
This year, there is a concerted effort to involve every state in the competition. The process is simple. Each state holds its own poster competition, and the single state winning poster is submitted to OJJDP for selection of the national winner. The winning child, his/her teacher, and parents are flown to Washington, DC to receive an award from the Attorney General. The competition is open to children in 5th grade only. Complete details and rules can be found on the web site listed above.
