COLUMBUS— Ohio’s new license plate design is out.
The state is phasing out its old license plate and offering the new design starting today. It’s called “Ohio Pride” and its background features 46 slogans describing the Buckeye State.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Ohio Gov. John Kasich went to the Columbus College of Art and Design to recruit students to help design the new plates.
Ohioans voted on the slogans, which include “America’s Heartland,” ‘’Underground Railroad” and “With God All Things Are Possible.”
The old “Beautiful Ohio” plates will be available for purchase until June 30, or until they run out. Those replaced the “Sunburst” plates over a six-month period in 2010.
