License Plate

WAVE Foundation Speciality License Plate


The WAVE Foundation was recently approved for a Kentucky Special License Plate but we need your help for the plate to be put into circulation. The new license plate will feature a penguin photo similar to the proposed image to the right. For each plate sold or renewed, the WAVE Foundation will receive $10 with proceeds supporting WAVE’s Education programs including Oureach, Summer Camp, Finstitute Learning Adventures and Conservation Field Research.

We have to secure 900 pre-orders within two years for the production process to begin. So, help us get rolling and sign up now!

How Can I Get My Own Special License Plate?

If you live in the state of Kentucky (or know someone who does), and would be interested in getting a plate, the first step is to fill out the application for a special license plate and mail it to the WAVE Foundation with a $25 check made payable to the WAVE Foundation. The $25 is a deposit that will be become a credit towards the final plate purchase once we have received 900 applications. Once production is underway, people who have ordered plates will receive a voucher for their original $25. The full cost of the plate will be $44, so there will be an additional $19 due at pickup to receive your plate. If the WAVE Foundation does not receive 900 applications within the two year period, you will receive a full refund for the $25 deposit.

To place your order, just download and fill out the Special License Plate Order Form and return it with your $25 deposit to:
