GRAND ISLAND, Neb. — A fifth-grader from Nebraska has won a national contest to design a poster reminding people to lock up household poisons.

The Nebraska Regional Poison Center says Daisy Villatoro won the contest’s middle division for third, fourth and fifth graders.

Villatoro is a student at Knickrehm Elementary in Grand Island, Nebraska.

Her artwork will be featured on the national poster for poison prevention week in March. Her poster encouraged people to “Bee Smart” and lock up household poisons where children can’t get them.
