License plates can be more than a means of identifying a vehicle. Much like bumper stickers or the clothes we wear, specialty plates can an expression of our values and beliefs or a nod to our hobbies. 

In Arizona we have more than 90 specialty license plates featuring a wide range of causes or charities. To boost awareness, we spotlight one specialty license plate a week on social media.

Here are the plates that were featured in September:

  • A State of Good Character: $17 goes to a special fund for character education programs within the Arizona Department of Education. 
  • Arizona State University (ASU):   $17 dollars of the initial and annual renewal fee goes to the university for academic scholarships.
  • Arizona Sportsmen for Wildlife Conservation: $17 of the fee will fund wildlife habitat projects, outdoor recreational and educational opportunities.
  • Friend of Eight (Channel 8 PBS): $17 goes to Arizona Foundation of Public Broadcast Television, which provides noncommercial and nonsectarian educational television services.
