Lee Glover Langdon, a fifth-grade student at the Lonoke Elementary School, won the Smart911 Poster Contest with his poster titled “Help My Dad Is Being Attacked by Dogs.”

On, Tuesday, Dec. 18, State Sen. Eddie Joe Williams went to the Lonoke Elementary School and presented Langdon with a $100 check for his winning poster.
