Specialty License Plate Iniative
It is your turn to support the Arts in Tennessee by ordering a specialty license plate.
||Tennesseans for the Arts recently held a "State Your Plate" competition to design the next specialty plate to benefit the arts in Tennessee.
To the left you'll see a mock up of the winning plate.
Tennesseans for the Arts needs 500 people to pre-order "State Your Plate's" winning design so it can go into production. Each plate is $35, of which 90% will go to the Tennessee Arts Commision to support art organizations across the state -- like us!
For more information about the the pre-ordering process click here.
We encourage our members and supporters to join our efforts by sharing their TACA Stories with us. We, in turn, share these with our legislators.
