Louisa, KY — As of April 1, 2015, two new specialty license plates are available in the state of Kentucky. The “Donate Life” plate is part of the Circuit Court Clerk’s program, ‘Trust for Life,’ promoting organ donation and raising awareness of this important cause.
The other plate represents wildlife, depicting a fish, but not just any fish. The fish pictured on this license plate is the world record smallmouth bass, caught in south central Kentucky’s Dale Hollow Lake in 1955. Proceeds from the sale of this plate will help fund wildlife education and conservation summer camps.
According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, KY offers over 100 specialty plates, most of which promote a special cause. When a specialty plate is purchased, $10 is donated to the cause it represents.
County Court Clerk Chris Jobe said the plates are a great way to promote and support an organization you are interested in.
