4-H Specialty License Plates Available August 30

Last updated on Saturday, August 10, 2013

(UNDATED) - Beginning Aug. 30, residents of Indiana will once again be able to purchase Indiana 4-H Foundation specialty license plates.

A ruling was made on July 30 reinstating the 4-H Foundation in the Specialty License Plate program.

"We are so pleased that people can once again show their support for Indiana 4-H by purchasing 4-H Foundation plates "stated Indiana 4-H Foundation Board President Tom McKinney. "I encourage everyone who supports 4-H to purchase the Foundation plate. The plate fee supports programs for young people statewide, and a portion of the money from each plate that is sold goes right back to 4-H in the county where the plate was purchased."

The funding Indiana 4-H receives from specialty plates supports programs all across the state like Teens Teaching Youth AgriScience and Biotechnology and the 4-H National Youth Science Day Eco-Bot Challenge. Both of these programs give many Indiana students an experience with science skills that are in demand in today's job market.

4-H is the largest youth development organization in Indiana with more than 200,000 youth participants, 15,000 adult volunteers and 5,000 youth volunteers. The Indiana 4-H Youth Development mission is to provide real-life educational opportunities that develop young people who positively impact their communities and the world.
