Coloring for a cause – more than two dozen fifth graders from across the area were judged on their creative entries into the National Missing Children’s Day Poster Contest.

Every year the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention conducts a national poster contest for fifth graders to bring greater awareness to the issue of missing children.

The poster contest is designed to increase awareness about the danger of abduction among the nation’s children while providing an opportunity for schools, law enforcement and other community organizations to engage children and their parents in informative discussions on safety and prevention.

The theme for the poster contest is “Bring Our Missing Children Home.” Students are asked to design and draw a poster that reflects the theme and complete an application describing the importance of the theme.

Macy Boegner won 2nd place and Leah Anderson came in third. The first place winner, Shelby Harrison, of Crockett, will compete again for a chance to travel to Washington, D.C., to receive an award and participate in the Missing Children’s Day ceremony on May 25, 2012.
