Georgia Aquarium Announces New Specialty License Plate

Launching online contest for guests and public to choose plate design

Georgia Aquarium announces a special interest license plate featuring dolphins approved by the Georgia Department of Revenue for immediate sale. The plate is offered in anticipation of opening the new dolphin expansion at the Aquarium in November 2010. Proceeds from the new plate will support the Aquarium’s efforts in conservation and animal research.

Beginning June 4, Georgia Aquarium will host a contest for guests and Web site visitors to choose from one of four possible designs in consideration for the new plate. Voters can visit to vote for their favorite. Voters are automatically entered to win one of three prizes. Three winners will be drawn, at random, from all contest entries collected.

The grand prize winner will receive a two night stay at Hammock Beach Resort, airfare for two provided by AirTran Airways and a trip to Marineland located in St. Augustine, Florida. The Marineland visit will include a day of dolphin programs and encounters. In addition, winners will participate in a guided behind-the-scenes tour of the facility by a dolphin trainer.

The second place winner will receive four tickets to swim or dive at the Georgia Aquarium through the Journey with Gentle Giants program. A third prize winner will receive four Annual Passes to the Georgia Aquarium along with four tickets for a Behind the Scenes Tour.

The contest will wrap June 22 and the final plate design will be announced shortly afterward during the Aquarium’s 10 millionth guest celebration.

Contest begins Thursday, June 4, 2009

Plates are available for purchase at or by phone at 404-581-4000 beginning June 4 for a $25 manufacturing fee.

Participants may place their votes by filling out an official contest ballot located throughout the Aquarium or by visiting online at
