Upcoming MCCH Events
The National Missing Children’s Day Poster Contest is conducted every year by the U.S. Department of Justice, with an award ceremony that occurs in Washington D.C. to commemorate National Missing Children’s Day (May 25th). This year, the award ceremony will take place on Wednesday, May 23, 2018 with the theme—“Bring Our Missing Children Home”—at which time the national poster contest winner will be recognized.
Each participating State will submit one poster created by a 5th grader in that State. Accordingly, the State Attorney General: Missing Child Center–Hawaii will be conducting a state-wide competition to select a poster to be submitted to the U.S. Department of Justice for selection of the national winner. The national 5th grade winner, his/her teacher, and parents are then invited to Washington, D.C. to attend the National Missing Children’s Day ceremony.
Last year, Zayne Kaaihue, a fifth grader from the Nanakuli Boys & Girls Club, was awarded first place in the state-wide competition. As the first-place winner, Zayne’s poster was submitted to the National Missing Children’s Day Poster Contest to represent the State of Hawaii.
We would like to invite every 5th grader in Hawaii to enter the poster contest. First, second, and third place winners for this year’s state-wide competition will receive a certificate and a gift card.
Each poster must accompany a completed contest application, along with a signed parent/guardian release and consent form.
