New special-issue plates for 2010




Indiana has a few new special-issue plates for 2010 (they'll be dated "11," as their first expiration will come in 2011).  You'll note that unlike other special plates, these are numbered in an AA9999 format, but without the stacked letters, which many find difficult to read at a distance.

I've got images of the new plates at left, and they are, in order of appearance:

EARLHAM COLLEGE
This plate benefits the Richmond college that was founded by the Quakers in 1847.  Its additional cost includes a $25 group fee and a $15 administrative fee.
May be used on cars, motorcycles, trucks to 11,000 pounds, and RVs.


GOLD STAR FAMILY
The Gold Star Family plate is available to spouses, parents, siblings and children of those who died while serving in the military, including all those on active duty, in the Reserves or the National Guard.  Family members are required to submit a DD1300 form from the Department of Defense, but there are no additional fees for this plate; only standard registration fees and taxes apply.
May be used on cars, trucks up to 11,000 pounds, and RVs.

POW-MIA
The Prisoner Of War-Missing In Action license plate was sponsored by Indiana Rolling Thunder.  It honors all Hoosier veterans who are missing in action or listed as prisoners of war. Proceeds from this plate go to the Veterans Assistance Trust Fund established by the General Assembly in 2007 to assist veterans and their families in times of financial hardship.  In addition to standard fees and taxes, this plate has a $25 group fee and an administrative fee of $15.
May be used on cars, motorcycles, trucks to 11,000 pounds, and RVs.

INDIANA BLOOD CENTER
This plate -- as you'd expect, given its name -- benefits the Indiana Blood Center.  An additional charge of $25 for the IBC and $15 for administrative fees applies.
May be used on cars, motorcycles, trucks to 11,000 pounds, and RVs.

INCASA ("End Violence Together")
The End Violence Together plate benefits the Indiana Coalition Against Sexual Assault.  It carries a $25 group fee and a $15 administrative fee.
May be used on cars, motorcycles, trucks to 11,000 pounds, and RVs.

AUTISM AWARENESS
Proceeds from this plate benefit the Autism Society of America in Indiana.  As with the other organizations' plates, this plate has a $25 group fee and a $15 administrative fee.
May be used on cars, motorcycles, trucks to 11,000 pounds, and RVs.
