First Kentucky autism awareness license plate goes to girl who helped create it

The first Kentucky autism awareness license plate went to a local girl who helped create it.

Natalie Pope's goal is to eventually find a cure for the disease, but she decided to make the license plate to promote awareness and a better understanding of autism, which her younger brother has.

It took the 17-year-old Girl Scout just over a year to meet the state's requirement that 900 plates be pre-sold.  Pope hopes the license plate will make drivers think beyond what they see: "I hope to see that it continues to grow and more people continue to be aware of autism and the effects it has on people and our entire community."

Pope has also been in talks with Indiana officials, where specialty plates may also feature her design.
