MADISON - There is still time to enter Wisconsin's Eagle License Plate Giveaway for a chance to be one of 10 Wisconsinites who receive the new Endangered Resources specialty license plate free of charge for the first year.
Enter the giveaway by providing your name and contact information online by 11:59 p.m. Sept. 2 at the Department of Natural Resources website, dnr.wi.gov, by searching keywords "eagle plate." Entries are limited to owners of a registered Wisconsin vehicle that qualifies for a special plate: an automobile, light truck, farm truck or motor home.
Winners will be randomly selected Sept. 5. Winners who want to keep their eagle plate in subsequent years will be responsible for the $25 annual donation required to own the plate.
While the design is new, the Endangered Resources license plate has raised money to help care for Wisconsin's native wildlife, plants and State Natural Areas since 1995. Revenue from the $25 annual donation motorists pay for the plate have played an important role in restoring bald eagles, trumpeter swans and other once-endangered species to Wisconsin.
