National Missing Children's Day

In 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.

Missing 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 cause.

As 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 Home”.

The plight of missing and abducted children is a priority all year long, this opportunity allows students to participate in the mission of bringing missing children home and promoting child safety.

The single National winner, his/her teacher, and students parents will have an opportunity to participate in the National Missing Children's Day ceremony in Washington D.C.
