Idaho 4-H working toward specialty license plates | Community Spirit
Do you want to show your support to the State of Idaho's 4-H program by sporting a 4-H themed license plate? Well now you can help make that happen.
A volunteer fund raising group, Idaho Friends of 4-H, is asking supporters of the University of Idaho Extension 4-H Youth Development program to participate in a survey about adding a green clover to special Idaho license plates.
The group is offering an online survey to get opinions and collect signatures. It is five questions and takes about two minutes to complete.
To keep the license plate idea moving they need signatures of at least 250 owners of Idaho-registered vehicles. Jim Wilson, University of Idaho Extension's Kootenai County Office Charmian and 4-H specialist at Couer d' Alene, wants even more before they submit the proposal to the Idaho Transportation Department.
“We’d like to have 800 to 1,000 people saying they intend to buy the plate,” Wilson said.
They have already received 160 responses to the survey and 143 responders said they would buy the 4-H license plate. A new special plate adds $35 to a vehicle registration fee and $22 would go to Idaho 4-H programs. Renewals of the special plates are $25 and $12 would go to Idaho 4-H programs.
The money would help fund new and existing programs that provide leadership and educational activities to over 36,000 kids ages 8-18 each year.
