PULLMAN, Wash. — The Washington State University Foundation is offering free tickets to the Apple Cup football game in an effort to identify the purchaser of the 10,000th WSU collegiate license plate.
WSU is within 75 sales of being the first university in the state to reach 10,000 collegiate license plate holders as part of the statewide program. Now in its fourth year, the program has generated $715,000 for WSU scholarships. A minimum $28 of the $30 annual licensing fee supports scholarships at the designated universities — WSU’s plates are emblazoned with the Cougarhead logo, and WSU supporters have purchased twice as many plates as any other university in the state.
The Foundation is offering Apple Cup tickets — for either this year or next — to both the first person to spot plate number 9999 on the road and to the person who owns it. Once plate 9999 is sold, the Cougarhead logo that appears on the far left side of the plate will move to the right side so another 10,000 can be sold.
“The scholarships generated through this program are bringing outstanding students to WSU,” said Gus Kravas, vice provost for student affairs.
To win the tickets, call 1-800/GIV-2WSU. The make and model of the car and the city in which you spotted it are required to win.
