Three Colorado 5th grade students were recognized for their award winning posters as part of the National Missing Children’s Day poster contest.
CBI Director John Camper formally honored Kacey May Costa (first place) from the town of Weston, Aliana Rodriguez (second place) and Collins Heck (third place), both from the town of Holly, for their winning posters in the days leading up to National Missing Children’s Day on May 25, 2022.
“I greatly appreciate Ms. Costa’s effort in creating a poster that reflects the pure joy and relief when a family member and child are reunited,” said CBI Director Camper. “While selecting a winner of this year’s contest was difficult, Kacey’s poster resonated with many of us here at the CBI.”
Tens of thousands of children are reported missing in the United States each year. Law enforcement, citizens, and even children have been instrumental in keeping children safe and returning them home to their families, communities and schools.
While Costa’s entry was selected as the top poster in Colorado, it was not the national winner through the United States Department of Justice Missing Children’s Day poster contest.
Each year, missing children are honored during National Missing Children’s Day on May 25th.
