Although we must wait another year to see our Olympic Athletes in action, you can still show your support for them by purchasing an Olympic license plate. The money raised from the plate is used to support the training efforts of North Carolina’s Olympians and to promote the development of future Olympians through the Powerade State Games. By purchasing an Olympic license plate, you will not only be supporting our current Olympians but the youth of North Carolina as well that have their own dreams of Olympic Gold. Simply ask for the plate at your local NC Division of Motor Vehicles or use the link found on the Donate page at www.ncsports.org.
