Where do you take your Bay plate? Just over the bridge to Ocean City, Md? Or maybe all the way to the California coast? We want to know! The Chesapeake Bay Trust is hosting its first ever, “Show Us Your Plate” contest, where Bay plate owners are asked to take pictures of themselves and their Bay plate in creative ways or interesting places.
Heading to the Caribbean this summer? Take your Bay plate snorkeling with you! Climbing in the Shenandoah mountains? Snap a picture from a mile high peak! There is no limit to how creative you can be!
The photo submission period is now open and it will close on August 30 at 5:00pm! The top three photos submitted will be voted upon by the public. One winner will be chosen and receive a $100 gift card to Amazon.com, free tickets to the Trust’s Treasure the Chesapeake gala in Annapolis, and other great giveaways! There are also great prizes for the winners and randomly selected voters so make sure to get your entry in!

Most Marylanders don’t know that proceeds from the Treasure the Chesapeake license plate help fund projects in their local communities, like environmental field trips, tree plantings and trash clean ups.
