In partnership with the Animal Welfare Fund of New Jersey, The Lesniak Institute is opening up the design of our state’s newest license plate to New Jersey students with the theme: New Jersey is the humane state for animals.

The design contest is open to students in elementary, middle and high school. The goal of this contest is to inspire students to use their artistic talent to promote awareness of protecting animals from cruelty and saving animals from extinction.

Why New Jersey is the Humane State

New Jersey enacted the first and the strongest in the nation ban on ivory and rhino horn transactions.

New Jersey is one of only two states (the other is Washington) to enact a ban on imports and transportation of “trophies” of endangered species.

New Jersey made dog fighting a RICO offense to ensure that everyone who participates in a dog fight will be charged with a crime.

New Jersey banned transportation of horses to slaughter houses.

For more information about the contest, go to the Lesniak Institute and enter by June 30, 2018.
