The design for the new Ohio license plate was unveiled today by Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, First Lady Fran DeWine and Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles Registrar Charlie Norman.
The new plate, called “Sunshine in Ohio,” features a shining sun rising from a wheat field with a city skyline and a girl swinging from a tree next to a dog.
The Governor and First Lady participated in the design decisions, hoping to reflect the geographic diversity of the state and the state seal.
The license plate, designed by Ohio Department of Public Safety’s Greg Wyatt, will become the standard starting December 29.
Inmates at Lebanon Correctional Center started making the new plate in October and are slowing the production of the current “Ohio Pride” license plate that were introduced in 2013.
