How do I get a Sparky license plate?

  2. Visit your local MVD branch to place your order in person.

How does ASU get my contribution?
The MVD will collect and forward $17 of your $25 contribution to the ASU Alumni Association. The money raised by the ASU collegiate license plate program are allocated directly to the Medallion Scholarship fund that gives ASU students opportunities to enhance their college experience through participation in this leadership scholarship program.
