The Automobile License Plate Collectors Association (ALPCA, Inc.) has voted that Arizona has the best new license plate in the United States. Last year, Arizona introduced a Centennial plate to honor the 100th anniversary of statehood in 2012. Since 1970, ALPCA recognizes a state with the best new license plate design of the year. This year marks the 41st anniversary of the award and the second award for Arizona after winning in 1996 for its general issue plate.

The popular specialty license plate was designed by P.S. Studios of Phoenix and required approval from the Arizona Department of Transportation and Arizona Department of Public Safety.

A special awards ceremony is being planned in the coming weeks. ALPCAs president will travel to Arizona to present state officials with award plaques. For more information, visit

Arizona motorists have the option of buying this special commemorative plate for $25; of which $17 benefits the Arizona Centennial 2012 Foundation a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Visit to purchase this specialty plate.
