Ag License Plates Benefit FFA    

If you’re like most of us, anytime you go to an FFA conference,  field day, booster event or any other agriculturally-oriented activity there are a few unifying elements that always standout and let you know that you’re in the right place. The school vans, boots, blue jackets and now the unifying agriculture license plate. Spotting a CalAgPlate at an FFA event, a livestock show or any random parking lot is particularly exciting for those FFA members and advisors who can still recall the work that California FFA Association members put into making the program a reality.

Five years ago at the State FFA Conference former CDFA Secretary A.G. Kawamura announced the CalAgPlate program and 2015 marked the first year FFA received funding for the program. Agriculture-themed specialty license plates hit the road in 2013, following a tremendous campaign by California FFA members to secure 7,500 paid license plate pledges. In 2015 the California FFA Association received just over $162,000 from the CalAgPlate program.

The program is funded with proceeds generated through the sale and renewal of specialized, agriculture-themed license plates through the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The funding has allowed FFA to enhance and restore programs that were previously reduced due to budget cuts. The printing and delivery of the CA FFA News is one of many programs that was restored because of CalAgPlate funds.

The funds received so far are just the beginning. As additional plates are registered funding to California FFA Association will exponentially increase - imagine the possibilities! Show your pride for California Agriculture and register your CalAgPlate today!
