WAEF: Nearly 750 Plates Sold In The First Year

Washington Apple Education Foundation says year one of their specialty apple license plate was a success, with 747 sold statewide. Jennifer Witherbee, WAEF Executive Director, said the license plate program was launched July 1, 2020 in an effort to raise money for student scholarships.

“We have about 750 plates out on Washington highways right now and what’s exciting about that, is that $28 from each plate helps to support college bound students in our communities.”

Witherbee says the foundation is on track to sell 1,000 plates by the end of 2021 and is projected to provide $20,000 in scholarship funding for local students
