Voting is open until noon MST on April 24 and the winner will be announced on May 1, 2024.

Stripes Plate   Mountain Plate

Stripes

Inspired by the timeless charm of vintage Wyoming plates, this design proudly showcases the iconic brown and gold colors that symbolize our state’s heritage. With a nod to our beloved University of Wyoming’s rallying cry, "Go Pokes," this plate embodies the pride and loyalty that defines UW. Get ready to hit the road with a touch of nostalgia and a whole lot of UW spirit!

 

Mountains

This plate design represents the beauty of our state’s iconic mountain ranges, featuring a silhouette similar to the endzones of Jonah Field at War Memorial Stadium. The colors of brown and gold proudly adorn this plate, echoing the pride and loyalty that runs deep in the hearts of Poke Nation. With a nod to our cherished University of Wyoming and its famous, “Go Pokes,” this plate captures the essence of Wyoming’s natural beauty and unwavering spirit.

The History


In 2007, the UWAA began accepting the first cycle of UW license plate applications and a brown plate was approved followed by our most recent cycle of gold plates. Now that the required 8-year cycle is completed, the white plates you see here will go to a vote for the very first time.

An online system is available for new orders of the 2018 gold series plates until this current license plate cycle has ended. You can also order your license plate and pay by check through this application PDF.

Any vehicle or motorcycle registered in Wyoming is eligible to receive the UW plate. $130 is required with the plate application. Of this fee, $100 is deposited into an UW account that is restricted for student scholarships and programming expenditures. $30 goes back to the Wyoming Department of Transportation. Not only do the plates look great on vehicles, but they are a great way to support UW students! The $130 plate fee is not tax deductible.
