University of Virginia: New ‘Go Hoos’ License Plates Show Pride, Support Student-Athlete Scholarships

For the first time, fans of the University of Virginia can be true to their school by displaying a new “GO HOOS” Virginia license plate, with proceeds going back to scholarships at the University.

The new plates, which recently went on sale at Virginia’s Department of Motor Vehicles, feature UVA’s “V-Sabre” logo to the left of the plate number. Buyers can also personalize their plates for an additional fee, using up to six characters.

The possibilities are endless. Consider:

Any-HOO … the plates start at $25 annually and once 1,000 are sold, $15 of the $25 fee goes to student-athlete scholarships at UVA.

If you live out-of-state or already have a Virginia plate you can’t part with, not to worry. Hoos fans can also buy souvenir plates with the new design for ornamental display.

“What better way for Hoos throughout the commonwealth to show their school spirit and support UVA students?” said Katie Dittmer, UVA’s new director of licensing.
