Last year, approximately 400,000 children were reported missing in the United States. To help address this problem, Actress Tia Mowry is teaming up with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) and Honeywell to announce the KidSmartz “Safety Dance” Video Contest, a nationwide competition aimed at equipping elementary school students with the skills and confidence they need to be safer from abduction.
Honeywell will award a cash prize to four winning schools selected from across the country.
The KidSmartz “Safety Dance” is an adaptation of the 1983 hit song of the same name by Men Without Hats. The KidSmartz version features new lyrics that teach students four simple safety rules.
Tia Mowry joined The Rhode Show Monday to discuss the “Safety Dance” video contest and the importance of child safety and abduction prevention.
