Lucy Kuelper

Rio, Illinois

Lucy Kuelper, 12, of Rio, Illinois, a member of Knox County 4-H and a seventh-grader at ROWVA Junior/Senior High School, started the “Move Over Project” to spread awareness about laws that require drivers to change lanes when a vehicle is stopped on the side of the road; her efforts include speaking at events, managing a social media page and connecting with legislative representatives. Lucy, whose father is a state trooper, had her project presented on the U.S. Senate floor by Senator Dick Durbin.
