This is the thirteenth year the Minnesota FFA Foundation has offered the Blue Jackets Bright Future Program. This program provides members with a personalized FFA jacket that supports their FFA involvement. The "blue 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 is not uncommon for individuals and companies to sponsor jackets, because they appreciate what the organizations does to develop young leaders," said Val Aarsvold Minnesota FFA Foundation director.
