Boys State has two separate ‘Model Citizen’ awards that are given each years. One, the Keith Lucas award is given to the citizen that is determined to be the model citizen by their peers in each county. These initial eight citizens are then interviewed by senior counselors to determine the final winners. Even being considered for this award means the citizen has made quite an impact on the other citizens within their county this week. This year’s Keith Lucas Model Citizen Award winner is Mario Giannini of Grayslake. The runner up is Antonio Escatel of Mendota. The third place finisher is Benjamin Bertsche of St. Charles.
