BSA Iowa License Plate


For the first time, Scouters and Scout supporters can purchase an official Iowa license plate honoring the Boy Scouts of America.  Here’s how: 

1.   Print out the application from our website or pick one up at the Service Center.
2.   Return your completed application to the Council Service Center with:
  a. $35 for a numbered plate;
  b. $60 for a personalized plate;
  c. a check payable to "Boy Scouts of America";
3. DO NOT SEND THE APPLICATION TO IOWA DOT as instructed on the form.
4.   After the minimum of 500 applications (from the entire state) are received, they will be filed, and the plates will be produced.  If the minimum number of applications is NOT received, you will receive a 100% refund.
5.   After the first 500 paid applications are received, the process will become automated via the Iowa DOT.

Plates may be ordered for automobiles, motor homes, multipurpose vehicles, trucks (3, 4 & 5 ton), travel trailers, and motorcycles.  The annual renewal fees for these plates are $10 for a numbered plate and $15 for personalized and are due when you pay your annual vehicle registration fee. 

Our gratitude goes to the Secretary of State and Eagle Scout, Matt Schultz.  Every special plate in Iowa must have a sponsor.  As our sponsor, the office of the Secretary of State is allowing 100% of the proceeds to support Scouting even though they could retain a portion.    

Please contact the Illowa Council Service Center with any questions.  (563) 388-7233
