Teresa L. Carlson, Special Agent-in-Charge of the Milwaukee Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was joined by the FBI Milwaukee Citizens Academy Alumni Association to announce the FBI Junior Special Agent essay contest.
The contest is open to all 5th grade students within Milwaukee County. The top six entries will be selected to go behind the scenes of the FBI. The Jr. Special Agent essay contest runs now through Friday, March 1, 2013.
The contest is open to all Milwaukee County public and private elementary schools. Participating schools are asked to submit their top two entries from one male and one female student. Fifth grade students are asked to submit a one page essay on an 8 ½” x 11” sheet of paper regarding the following topic:
“What I can do to stay safe while on the Internet.”
“The Jr. Special Agent essay contest is great way to engage kids in discussing Cyber Safety,” said SAC Carlson “it’s also a rare opportunity for them to go behind the scenes and spend part of their day with our Special Agents.”
The top six winners will visit the FBI Milwaukee Division on Wednesday, April 24, 2013. Students will meet with Special Agent in Charge Teresa L. Carlson, take a tour, participate in interactive demonstrations, listen to safety presentations by Special Agents and enjoy lunch provided by the FBI Citizens Academy Alumni Association.
