AUGUSTA, Maine — The Maine Crafts Association wants to have a new specialty license plate in support of crafts, art and creativity.
The group is soliciting submissions for possible designs for the plate, from which a winning design will be selected. The submission deadline is Oct. 12.
Organizers say once the plate design is chosen, they will begin collecting 2,000 signatures, each with a $25 contribution, as required by the Office of the Secretary of State.
If the association meets its goal, the plate would be available to the public beginning in 2014. A portion of the plate’s cost would go to the Maine Crafts Association in support of programming, marketing and scholarships.
