Gabby Horman's 5th grade class participated in the National Missing Children's Day poster contest.

He says teaching kids to take care of themselves is an important lesson too. "Kids, God bless 'em, they're having a lot of fun, and they're learning and they should, but they have to be a little watchful for unusual circumstances as well," said Van Hollen.
Horman is the third winner from Bangor in the eight years of the competition.
