The brand new Wisconsin 4-H license plate is now available for your car, truck, or motor home. This specialty plate is 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,” says 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:
- 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
- 12,000 pounds gross weight farm truck
Those requesting Wisconsin 4-H license plates will pay:
- 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.
- $25 annual donation. The donation may be tax deductible.
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. With each annual license plate renewal, 4-H supporters will pay the regular registration fee for non-personalized 4-H license plates and the $25 donation.
