Nearly 150 Pinellas students were recognized for their license plate designs at the ceremony at Largo High on Jan. 17.

Kids Tag Art is a partnership between Florida Tax Collectors, local school districts, and business sponsors. The  contest gives fifth-graders the opportunity to design front license plates. Proceeds from the tag sales are donated to schools to pay for art supplies and art-themed field trips.

The Pinellas County Tax Collector’s Office launched Kids Tag Art Pinellas in 2015. Since then, the office has raised more $144,000 for elementary art programs and college scholarships.

Student designs can be viewed and purchased online at kidstagartpinellas.org through Jan. 30.
