Three designs for a new state parks and trails license plate were released Monday – and now Minnesotans can vote on their favorite.

More than 80 people submitted designs for the new license plate, which support Minnesota state parks and trails and provides free entry to the parks, according to the state Department of Natural Resources.

Three finalists were selected based on creativity, quality, representation of Minnesota state parks and trails, and suitability as a license plate image.

And now the public can vote for the winning plate online here until 5 p.m. Monday, July 4. Here are the choices:

The winning license plate design will be available in October, in honor of the Minnesota state parks and trails' 125th anniversary.

They'll cost $60, plus tax. The fee includes a one-time $10 fee for the license plate itself, plus a minimum $50 contribution. The license plates also replace a vehicle permit (a $25 value) at all 75 Minnesota state parks.
