Design chosen for license plate honoring N.C. Aquariums

A design has been picked for North Carolina license plates that honor the N.C. Aquariums and Jennette’s Pier, but there are still more steps ahead to get it on the back of vehicles.

Now it will take 500 requests by February 2022 for the plates to be approved and then produced by the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles.

A $30 donation for the plate will go back to the North Carolina Aquarium Society, the non-profit group that assists with program funding for ongoing conservation, animal care, and education programs at the aquariums and pier.

If the plates get enough orders, they are expected to be sent out in summer 2022.
