NASHVILLE (AP) — The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is encouraging fifth-graders across the state to enter a poster contest.
It’s the U.S. Department of Justice’s 2012 National Missing Children’s Day poster competition.
The purpose is to show the country’s effort to bring missing children home safely and highlight the importance of proactive education programs.
Applications should be submitted to the TBI, which will pick a state winner for the national contest. The state winner gets a free trip to Washington, D.C.
Entries must be postmarked by Feb. 29. Details are at www.tbi.tn.gov.
