To the Editor: I don’t mean to be critical, but recent Kansas license plates have been rather boring. I have a suggestion. Open a statewide student competition to design the next plate.
Encourage students to keep it simple using bold colors that stand out and that make a statement about the great state of Kansas. Maybe even incorporate an aircraft in it since Kansas is famous for aircraft production.
Another idea, bring back the beautiful old “Home on the Range” tag with the bison, at least as an option. What’s more Kansas than that?
I’m originally from the UK — Upper Kansas — and take great pride in it. Please design a plate we can all be proud of!
