DMV invites citizens to design 150th anniversary license plate

In 2026, the state of Colorado is turning 150-years-old, and the DMV is asking for residents to submit ideas for the commemorative anniversary license plate.  Entries will be judged on historical significance, artistic design, and how both best represent the Centennial State.

There is no cost to submit and individuals can enter a maximum of three designs.  There will be two divisions for consideration, ages 12 and younger and 13 and older, and all who live or study in Colorado may apply.  A committee will select 10 finalists in each division and the final top three designs will be voted on by the public.  

The DMV is currently accepting submissions and the contest ends on November 30.  Winners will receive a $1,000 grant and a commemorative license plate.
