The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is thrilled to announce the environmental license plates are now available for purchase. To buy the environmental license plate, go to https://www.ok.gov/tax/documents/710-E.pdf.
Last year, Oklahomans took to their computers in droves to vote for the two winning designs. Ultimately, the American Bison grazing on the Oklahoma prairie and the Oklahoma sunset over field of flowers were crowned the winners. The new tags were created to help communicate the importance of preserving and restoring Oklahoma’s beautiful landscape.
Each specialty plate costs $39, with $20 going to fund DEQ’s Environmental Education Tag Grant Program, which provides money to Oklahoma schools for environmentally focused projects. For more information on the tags or the Environmental Education Tag Grant Program, visit DEQ’s website at https://www.deq.ok.gov.
