National Missing Children's Day
1983, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed May 25 as National Missing Children’s
Day. Each year, the Department of Justice (DOJ) commemorates Missing Children’s
Day with a ceremony honoring the heroic and exemplary efforts of agencies,
organizations, and individuals to protect children.
Children’s Day is dedicated to encouraging parents, guardians, caregivers, and
others concerned with the well-being of children to make child safety a
priority. It serves as a reminder to continue our efforts to reunite missing
children with their families and an occasion to honor those dedicated to this
part of this initiative, the U.S. Department of Justice has launched a National
Missing Children’s Day Poster Contest which invites fifth-grade
students to create a poster to include the theme “Bringing Our Missing Children
