The brand new Wisconsin 4-H license plate is now available for your car, truck or motorhome. The specialty plate is now available through the Wisconsin Department of Motor Vehicles and bears the message "4-H Empowering Youth." The sale of each license plate will include a monetary contribution to the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation.

"This is a great way for our 4-H families, alumni and supporters to show their 4-H pride," said Brenda Scheider, Executive Director for the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation. "Half of the proceeds from every plate sale will go back to the county in which the plate was purchased. The other half will be used for state and regional 4-H programs."

Vehicles that qualify for the 4-H license plate include:

• Automobiles

• Motor homes (annual registration only)

• Motor trucks

• 4,500, 6,000 or 8,000 pounds gross weight including dual purpose farm and dual purpose motor home

• The regular registration fee for the vehicle if the current plates expire within three months or the vehicles has no plates.

• $15 issuance fee or an annual $15 personalized plate fee, if requested.

4-H license plates may be personalized by paying a $15 personalized plate fee each year in addition to the $25 donation and regular annual registration fee.
