Here’s something cool. MPR and others report that the state has announced its finalists for the new Minnesota state parks and trails license plate design contest.

Each design was submitted by a citizen artist to reflect the state park experience. One of the designs depicts Itasca State Park, the headwaters of the Mississippi River. Another represents a camp tent; another a curvy footbridge on a lake.

The plates will be available in October.

From MPR:

“It has been exciting to see all the creative ways people represented Minnesota state parks and trails in their license plate designs,” Erika Rivers, director of the DNR’s parks and trails division, said in a statement. “Now it’s up to the voters to choose a winner.”

The new license plates will be available in October as part of the ongoing celebration of Minnesota state parks and trails’ 125th anniversary.

The new plates will cost $60, plus tax. The plates provide their owners with unlimited access to all 75 Minnesota state parks and recreation areas for the year, replacing the need for a $25 vehicle permit, the DNR added. Proceeds from license plate sales will benefit Minnesota state parks and trails.

You can vote on your favorite design here. Voting will remain open now through 5 p.m. on Monday, July 4.
