What will the plate look like? We will design the plate in conjunction with the State of Colorado. Our goal right now is to work with a Manitou designer to help us come up with three different versions of a plate design. We will then hold a public vote to choose the most supported design. There design template will allow us to change the color of the background behind the mountains, we will add a special logo that we will develop with input from our supporters, and we will have to choose colors that coordinate for the bottom two sections of the plate.
