PORTLAND — A Portland-based nonprofit is launching a campaign to create a new Maine specialty license plate to promote youth entrepreneurial programs.

Proceeds from the sale of the special license plates would go to support entrepreneurial programs aimed at children between the ages of 5 and 15.

Build A Biz has to collect at least 2,000 signatures and raise $50,000 and then gain legislative approval to guarantee that the plates will be produced.

The proposed license plate would have the group's acorn logo on the side. The bottom of the plate would read, "Support Entrepreneurship. Start Small. Accomplish Big."

Build A Biz Director Kate Gooding hopes to have the plates available to the public in August 2014. Proceeds would go to support entrepreneurial programs aimed at children between the ages of 5 and 15.

More information is available on the group's website, www.buildabiz.me.
