Proceeds from special plate to provide educational & sports opportunities for disadvantaged youth

Seattle Mariners fans can show their allegiance to the team with a new special license plate for their vehicle starting on January 2, 2019.

Washington Lt. Governor Cyrus Habib was on hand Sunday before the Mariners vs. Texas Rangers game to unveil the design for the team's first-ever special plate, and to tout the new programs the plate sales will support. It features the Mariners logo on a dark blue background with a "compass rose" motif.

Washington Lt. Governor Cyrus Habib was on hand Sunday before the Mariners vs. Texas Rangers game to unveil the design for the team's first-ever special plate, and to tout the new programs the plate sales will support. It features the Mariners logo on a dark blue background with a "compass rose" motif. 

Beginning next year, fans can purchase the special plates by filling out a form available on the Washington State Department of Licensing website. Completed forms, with payment for either the Mariners background or personalization, can be sent to the Department of Licensing headquarters in Olympia or, for the special background only (and not personalized plates), orders can be processed at any local vehicle licensing office in the state of Washington. The special plates cannot be ordered online.

The cost for the Mariners special plate for passenger vehicles is $72.75 per year for the standard special plate and $124.75 per year for a personalized version. The price does not include annual vehicle registration fees, which will be added at the time of purchase or renewal.

Net proceeds from the sale of the special plates will benefit two new statewide programs for Washington youth: The Washington World Fellows program, and the Washington Sports Mentorship Grant program. The two programs, established through a partnership between the Office of the Lt. Governor and the Association of Washington Generals, with support from the Seattle Mariners, aim to make college and sports more inclusive for disadvantaged youth. The Lt. Governor's Washington World Fellows program is an equity-focused study abroad and college-readiness fellowship designed to support high school students who plan to be the first in their families to attend. The Washington Sports Mentorship Grant program will provide grants to help under-served children and those with disabilities to have greater access to sports programs within organizations that foster inclusive sports environments.
