LINCOLN, NE—Nebraska is known as the Cornhusker State—and now corn will become even more prominent as it is featured on a new specialty license plate available to the public.
The license plate, developed by the Nebraska Corn Growers Association (NeCGA) features a large golden ear of corn against a ready-to-harvest field and bright blue Nebraska sky.
“You don’t have to be a member of NeCGA to purchase one of these attractive license plates,” said Larry Mussack of Decatur, president of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association. “Anyone who grows corn, does business with corn farmers, grew up on a corn farm, or simply wants to show their support for Nebraska’s corn industry can apply. Corn is Nebraska’s number one commodity, so we expect to see a lot of these plates on vehicles all across the state.”
Cost for the Nebraska Corn specialty license plate is $70, which is in addition to the standard fees for licensing one’s vehicle in Nebraska. This additional fee is due with the initial application and is subject to annual renewal. Credit cards will be charged an additional five percent processing fee.
The Nebraska Corn license plates can be used on a wide range of vehicles and equipment including passenger vehicles, pickups, farm trucks, semi-trailers, motorcycles, trailers and mobile homes.
Customized “vanity” plate messages are not available, and the plates will not carry a county designation. The Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles will assign plate numbers as applications are submitted.
There is no limit to the number of Nebraska Corn specialty plates one can order.
NeCGA must gather a minimum of 500 applications with payment before the plates will be manufactured through the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles.
