SALT LAKE CITY — Drivers in Utah will now be able to hit the road with a new license plate honoring Dr. Martin Luther King.

The state says the new plates are for those residents who celebrate "inclusion, diversity and the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr."

The slogan "Many Voices, One Utah" appears on the license which was created by Eleanor Smith, a student at Timpview High School.

Smith won a design contest in which her work was chosen by a committee consisting of commissioners, state representatives and other local leaders.

The new plates will cost $21 and can be obtained through the Utah Department of Motor Vehicles. They can be purchased by requesting a replacement for current license plates.
