The design of the proposed plate has been approve, now it needs to be approved by lawmakers.
In 2012, Girl Scouts of the USA will celebrate its 100th anniversary. To show their pride in being 100 years old and going strong, Girl Scouts of Colorado is seeking to create a special license plate to honor the occasion. The proposed graphic design of the proposed plate has already been approved by the national organization.
Part of the process of getting the proposed plate presented to and approved by the state legislature is to obtain a total of 3,000 names of supporters of this effort. Officials are facing a very close deadline and are asking for the public`s help. Go to the GSCO website, girlscoutsofcolorado.org, and enter your name and address in the form linked from the home page. Please enter your name only once.
Requirements are simple: you must be 18 years of age and a resident of Colorado. There is no requirement to purchase license plates, but if you choose to do so, the cost will be the same additional $50 cost as other special group license plates that are now available, such as the Bronco plate, breast cancer plate or Boy Scout anniversary plate. Supporters are hoping the plate will be available for purchase in time for the 100th anniversary in March of 2012.
For more information, contact Penny Roberts in Estes Park at (970) 586-1775 or Megan Ferland, GSCO CEO, at (303) 607-4815. Please help Scouts celebrate their big centennial anniversary and increase visibility and recognition of Girl Scouts throughout Colorado and the nation.
