Bring Our Children Home Poster

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) would like to congratulate the Florida state-wide winner of 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 FDLE and the Department of Education. 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 received over 150 posters that were thoughtful and well-drawn works of art that should make the parents, teachers, and children artists proud. The posters are displayed in FDLE headquarters for our members to remind staff that a child’s life might be saved by participating and raising awareness. To the right, is the state-wide winner’s original drawing and below is the 2021 Florida Missing Children’s Day billboard. FDLE also received excellent essays from all over the state that were very well thought out and which provided references for child safety. The state-wide winner essay can be read here.
