Anyone 13 or older can enter a coach, and parents can enter their child’s coach. Heck, youth coaches can enter themselves! It all starts at http://www.myplates.com/COACH.

Nominations are from now until Friday, October 11. Then MyPlates.com will choose up to 20 finalists in 7 regions of Texas and announce them on Saturday, October 19.

My Plates designs and markets new specialty license plates as a vendor for the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles. Texans have bought more than 159,000 My Plates since November 2009, putting more than $18.8M in the state general revenue fund. My Plates’ goal is to create a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship designed to maximize revenues for the state through the sale of My Plates specialty plates. My Plates is a joint venture of Etech, Inc. of Nacogdoches and Pinnacle Technical Resources of Dallas, http://www.myplates.com.

The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) is charged with overseeing the state’s motor vehicle services that provide consumer protection, assist motor vehicle-related businesses and raise revenue for the state. For every $1 it spends, the TxDMV returns $10 to build and maintain highways, roads and bridges and provide needed services to Texans. Each year the agency registers more than 22 million vehicles; regulates vehicle dealers; credentials buses and big trucks for intrastate and interstate commerce; issues oversize and overweight permits; and awards grants to law enforcement agencies to reduce vehicle burglaries and thefts.

  • “Specialty” plate refers to any official license plate other than the state’s general issue plate.
  • Specialty plates can be “personalized” plates, but they don’t have to be.
  • My Plates and TxDMV use only “specialty” and “personalized” to refer to these plates, not “vanity,” which is pejorative and lacks accuracy.
