Special Olympics Ohio License Plate

The state of Ohio has approved a Special Olympics license plate. These plates will be available for purchase early this summer. The plates will include the Special Olympics logo and will cost and additional $25 when you purchase your tags. Special Olympics Ohio will receive $15 for every plate sold and we are required to sell 500 tags each year to keep the plate in circulation.

The application and approval process for this project was initiated by a Tuscarawas Co. Special Olympic parent, David Roth. Roth collected the necessary petitions and followed the approval process through the House and Senate.

Roth said the reason why he pursued the license plate initiative was quite simple. "I wanted one," said Roth, who has noticed the Special Olympics logo on the license plates of other states. Roth’s daughter, Allison, is a Special Olympics athlete who participates in basketball and bowling. Ross collected all of the necessary signatures on a petition necessary to gain approval. He said he mostly did this by attending Special Olympics events, such as State Summer Games and Polar Plunges.

Ross said he is hopeful the plate will be available for purchase by this June.
