A Wisconsin 4-H license plate is now available for cars, trucks and motorhomes. The 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. 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; motorhomes (annual registration only); motor trucks; 4,500-, 6,000- or 8,000-pound gross-weight vehicles including dual-purpose farm and dual-purpose motorhomes; and 12,000-pound gross-weight farm trucks.

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 vehicle has no plates; $15 issuance fee or an annual $15 personalized plate fee, if requested; and $25 annual donation. The donation may be 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.
