Centre College narrowly edged out Transylvania University to claim the 2018 “Battle of the Bumpers” license plate sales title.
The “Battle of the Bumpers” is a friendly competition between the 18 AIKCU member institutions to see who can generate the most sales of their institution-branded “Kentucky Independent Higher Education” license plates. Ten dollars from the sale of each plate goes directly back to the institution to support student scholarships. Transylvania has had a lock on the title for the last decade.
While Centre and Transy remained at the top of the sales competition, Bellarmine University increased their annual total sales by 10% in 2018 and made the competition into a legitimate three way sales race.
Total sales of Kentucky Independent Higher Education license plates generated nearly $58,000 for student scholarships in 2018, bringing the total to more than $670,000 since the plates first hit the road in 2003.
Kentucky Independent Higher Education license plates are available through all Kentucky County Clerks offices. View all AIKCU member plates.
