FLORIDA — After 25 years, the Support Education specialty license plate has a new look. 

When a Florida resident purchases or renews their Support Education specialty tag, $20 goes directly to support schools, teachers, and students in the county where the tag is registered. 

“In Hillsborough County, we use the funds from the Support Education specialty tag for student scholarships, mentoring, and free school supplies for low-income students,” said Mike McCollum, Chief Advancement Officer at Hillsborough Education Foundation.

The new design promotes the importance of education in the Sunshine State and is among only a few specialty tags in Florida where the money goes back into the county where the tag was purchased or renewed. 

Florida's second specialty license plate was introduced in 1994.  Since then, over $13 million have been raised through the Consortium of Florida Education Foundations and local education foundation members throughout the state. 

“The Support Education specialty tag is a powerful way for citizens to demonstrate their commitment to our public schools and provide needed, local support for teachers and students,” said Mary Chance, president of the CFEF. “We are so excited to debut the new design and hope more Florida drivers will support their local teachers and students with the purchase or renewal of the Support Education license tag.”

The annual fee for the Support Education specialty license plate is $25.  The new Support Education tag design is available now.
