Ohio gets new license plates

Posted: Updated:

It's time for a new look and drivers around Ohio will be wearing it with pride.

Today the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles unveiled its new "Ohio Pride" license plate. The plate displays 46 slogans in the background describing what makes Ohio a great state such as "heart of it all" and "home of aviation".

The selection of slogans was a collaborative effort as Ohio residents submitted and voted for them.  Governor Kasich then contacted Columbus College of Art and Design students to design the plate.  Designer Aaron Roberts says the top red portion of the plate represents not only aviation but Ohio's distinctive flag and a cardinal's crest.

The state will be phasing out the beautiful Ohio plates as they will be available only until the inventory is gone. They replaced the sunrise plates back in 2010.
