OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma motorists now have a colorful new license plate option

It depicts a monarch butterfly with the slogan "Save the Monarchs."

The Nature Conservancy, which is working to preserve the habitat of the insects, had an online contest to select the design from six entries. The winning plate, designed by Rick Sinnett of Mustang, had 3,383 votes from the 12,800 who participated.

Want one? It's a special order from the Oklahoma Tax Commission. Click to link to an application form you can print out. The price is $40.

The plate will only be produced if 100 prepaid orders are received by May 1, 2020.

The current "standard" Oklahoma plate features the state bird, a scissortail flycatcher.
