Florida Specialty License Plates Online
Those specialized license plates with the Seattle Seahawks logo proved a monster hit in 2014.
Fans of the world champions bought 13,398 of them through mid-December to make it the second most popular specialty plate in Washington, according to a report delivered to state lawmakers Wednesday.
Only Washington State University sold more, 19,690, with the Law Enforcement Memorial plate ranking third with 10,705 followed by the University of Washington at 8,601, the Department of License report shows.
Washington now offers 47 different special designs and there are 121,000 specialty plates currently registered with the state.
Proceeds from license plate sales benefit public and private universities, nonprofits and certain state-run programs. In 2014, hundreds of thousands of dollars were generated for college scholarships, wildlife management and services for families of fallen police officers.
Sales began in January 2014 for the Seahawks plate as well as one for the Seattle Sounders FC.
Two new plates went on sale Jan. 2. One benefits scholarship programs at Seattle University and the other supports breast cancer screenings and follow-up tests for women with limited or no insurance through the state Department of Health’s Breast, Cervical, and Colon Health Program.
