2022 FMCD Poster and Essay Contest

Poster and Essay Contest Winners

The National Missing Children’s Day poster contest sponsored by the United States’ Department of Justice’s Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Office and the Florida state-wide winner of the National Missing Children’s Day essay contest sponsored by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and the Department of Education were held in 2022. The National Missing Children’s Day poster and the Florida Missing Children’s Day essay contest is designed to promote awareness among parents, teachers, and children and engage them in discussions regarding child safety.

FDLE would like to congratulate Ms. Hailey as the 2022 poster contest winner. Her artwork helped create the 2022 Florida Missing Children’s Day Billboard that will be displayed around the state and is showcases below.

FDLE would also like to congratulate Ms. Arie as the 2022 essay contest winner. She wrote an excellent essay that highlights the dangers for children in their communities and ways to avoid those dangers. She encourages children to practice self-defense, be aware of your surroundings, and do not share personal information to strangers online.
The goal of these contests and events is to provide teachers, families and communities with the opportunity to discuss ways for children to stay safe from abduction. Students are invited to watch Florida Missing Children’s Day live on Monday, September 12th, 2022, at 10 a.m. on the Florida Channel or via the web at www.theFloridachannel.org.
