Sponsors Needed - Blue Jackets Bright Futures Program

Sep 29 2016

As Minnesota FFA prepares to welcome thousands of young people into membership at the start of the school year, the Minnesota FFA Foundation will again offer the Blue Jackets Bright Futures program which provides sponsored FFA jackets to Minnesota youth who are starting their FFA career.


This is the ninth year the Minnesota FFA Foundation has offered the program.


“The Blue Jackets Bright Future program is a valuable program providing students with an FFA jacket to support their FFA involvement. A personalized FFA jacket provides recipients with a sense of pride while giving them ownership of their FFA experiences, said Lavyne Rada, Minnesota FFA Association Leadership Development Coordinator. “FFA plays an important role in developing agricultural and leadership skills in students while preparing them for their future careers.”


“The jacket is a symbol of tradition and pride for those who have worn the official FFA jacket. Many past members have sponsored jackets, but it’s not uncommon for individuals and companies to sponsor jackets because they appreciate what the organization does to develop young leaders,” said Val Aarsvold, Minnesota FFA Foundation Executive Director.

The Minnesota FFA Foundation partners with individuals and businesses to provide resources that promote and enhance premier leadership, personal growth and career success for Minnesota youth in Agricultural Education.
