ROANOKE, Va. – The newest Virginia license plate features Virginia Tech's mascot, the HokieBird.

On the license plate, the mascot is standing with its arms crossed.

This design beat out two others in a public vote last spring.

"We are excited," said Melanie Schramm, Virginia Tech's director of marketing. "This is the only spirit plate that features our mascot, and has added significance having been selected by our fans through online participation."

Hokie fans can purchase the new license plate at the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles' website or at their local DMV office.

The plate is the fourth Hokie spirit design to be used by the Virginia DMV.

Revenue from the license plate sales goes directly to support university scholarships.
