TBI accepting entries for missing children's poster contest

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is accepting entries for the 2016 National Missing Children's Day Poster contest.

The agency is encouraging fifth-graders from across the state to participate in the contest sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice.

Contestants enter at the state level for a chance to be selected as the national winner and awarded a free trip to Washington, D.C.

Fifth-graders are asked to develop artwork that represents America's united goal to bring missing children home safely. The contest also provides teachers and parents with tools to educate children about safety and the prevention of child abductions.

Entries should be submitted to the TBI, where a panel will select a winner for the national contest. Entries must be received by Jan. 13.
