The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is calling on 5th graders to participate in the National Missing Children's Day poster contest.
The contest is sponsored by the U.S. Justice Department and seeks to demonstrate America's united effort to bring missing children home safely. It also serves to educate children about safety and the prevention of child abductions.
