Summary: Dawson Mack, Alabama’s winner of the National Missing Children’s Poster Contest, was officially announced as the national winner for the contest at this year’s National Missing Children’s Day Ceremony held in Washington, DC on May 21, 2014. Dawson’s poster was selected from winning submissions from 48 states, 4 territories and 1 Air Base in Italy. Dawson is a student at Athens Intermediate School in Athens, Alabama. He is the son of Jason and Dawn Mack. He is the 15th winner of the Annual National Missing Children’s Day Poster Contest. The theme for the contest was "Bring our Missing Children Home." In 1983, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed May 25 as National Missing Children's Day. Each year the Department of Justice (DOJ) commemorates Missing Children's Day with a ceremony honoring the heroic and exemplary efforts of agencies, organizations, and individuals to protect children. In 2000, Attorney General Eric Holder, then serving as Deputy Attorney General, presented the first annual National Missing Children's Day Poster Contest award at DOJ's Missing Children's Day observance. The Missing Children's Day poster contest provides an opportunity for schools, law enforcement, and other community organizations to engage children and their parents in informative discussions about the problem of missing children and how to prevent it.
