Sports fans in Illinois have helped raised more than $500,000 for education.

Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White says, since 2010, more than 17,000 license plates featuring Chicago sports teams have been sold.

Twenty-five dollars from each plate sale and renewal goes towards state funding for public schools. So far, more than $544,000 has been raised.

The state has sold more plates featuring the Blackhawks than any other team.
