Latoya Glover of Chicago Heights won the contest based on a 200 word essay detailing how a new car would change her life.

"It's not a lot that mean just having a car, but I know that I will never drive by one of my coworkers and not give them a ride," she said. "I want to share what I have, even if it's something small, and you pay that forward."
