Show your SOKS pride with a distinctive Special Olympics Kansas license plate on your vehicle!

Any Kansas resident can receive an SOKS plate.

A $40 contribution to Special Olympics Kansas is required when you purchase or renew an SOKS license plate. The contribution helps support athlete programs including sports training and competitions, athlete leadership programs, health and wellness programs and so much more!

The state of Kansas has changed to a new digital printing system for license plates. You’ll receive a temporary tag when you purchase a plate, and the new SOKS plate will be mailed to you.

Kansas county treasurers are authorized to accept the $40 contribution when you pay your annual state tag fees and vehicle taxes.
