MD Hokie Bird License Plate

Support your University and your Local Chapter with the Virginia Tech Alumni License Plate!

Thank you for your interest in obtaining Maryland “Hokie Bird” vanity plates for your vehicle. The statewide tag coordinator will need only a few things from you to get your plates on the way.

Application and Fee

Fill out the owner and vehicle sections on the enclosed application (please print and complete).

See document section below.

Send a $50 one-time fee. This includes a $25 donation to your local scholarship fund plus the $25 MVA plate fee.

You will pay your bi-annual registration fee directly to the MVA when your plates are ready for renewal.


Please return the application and your check payable to “VTAA” directly to:

Tanya Palmateer Oxenberg
2952 Kingsmark CT,
Abingdon, MD 21009


The application should show the current address of the vehicle in MD as on record with MVA, otherwise they need to file change address first, then process the plates.

Numbering of plates is sequential and no special requests can be guaranteed.

Please remember that membership in the Virginia Tech Alumni Association does not require a donation, but you are encouraged to lend your support through a single or ongoing annual gift in any amount to the Virginia Tech Annual Fund. When making this gift, please allot a portion of it to “ALUMNI PROGRAMS” that help support local alumni chapter operations.
