ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is asking the public to design a new specialty license plate.

Parks and Trails Division director Erika Rivers tells the Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1JQkk1c ) the agency is looking for an image that “captures the essence of Minnesota state parks and trails.”

Entries will be accepted from Monday, May 2, until 4 p.m. Friday, May 6. A panel of judges will evaluate the entries. Three finalists will be put up for an online vote.

The new license plates will provide free entry to all of the state’s parks and recreation areas, and are expected to be available in October. The cost of the new plates will start at $60, plus tax.

Entry forms and contest rules are available on the state parks plate design contest page.
