Proceeds from the sale of these plates go the Illinois Future Teacher Corps Scholarship Fund. This fund is used to provide scholarships to full-time undergraduate and graduate students pursuing their teacher certification in Illinois. A portion of the funds also goes to the State Board of Education for grants to the Golden Apple Foundation which annually recognizes outstanding teachers in the state. Danae Fuqua, a fifth grade student from Grace McWayne School, created the winning design. Her design was chosen out of more than 9,000 entries.
