Gabriella Liong from Emerson Elementary School is this year's winner of the National Missing Children's Day Poster Contest.

The award was presented to Gabriella by Attorney General Sean Reyes, as well as Elizabeth Smart and her father, Ed Smart.

The contest is part of a national competition for fifth graders. They were encouraged to submit a poster and essay that would give hope to missing children.

Gabriella's poster is the state winner. It will now head to Washington D.C. to be judged for the national prize.
