An elementary school student in Madisonville wins a statewide contest with her dream of changing the world "one animal at a time".

The Kentucky Education Savings Plan Trust's "Dream Out Loud Challenge" invited students in grades K-6 to submit an original poem, drawing, video or essay. 

More than 1,400 students entered.

Lillian Norman, who attends Jesse Stuart Elementary, was one of six students to win. 

She submitted a video showing how she would change the world after college by finding a cure for animal cancer. 

Lillian was awarded a $1,500 college scholarship Tuesday by the Kentucky Education Savings Plan Trust. 

Her school also received $500.
