Virginia’s Missing Children Clearinghouse proudly joins efforts with the U. S. Department of Justice to educate Virginia’s fifth-grade students about personal safety issues through a national poster contest.
2011 contest theme:
"BRING OUR MISSING CHILDREN HOME."
The following materials will provide assistance with promotion and implementation of this important activity.
The finished poster must measure 8 ½ x 14 inches.
(This is a change in previous contest guidelines.)
