ND FFA Foundation receives over 300 Blue Jacket applications

Three hundred twenty-four North Dakota FFA members applied for a blue FFA jacket through the North Dakota FFA Foundation’s (ND FFA Foundation) program “Blue jackets, Bright Futures.” The program provides a corduroy jacket to members who may not have the financial resources, as well as to those who have displayed the qualities and values of the FFA including leadership and personal growth.
Each jacket given through this program is sponsored by a donor. Any individual can become a jacket sponsor with a contribution of $74. While the application period has closed for this year at a total of 324 applications, the ND FFA Foundation can only give 260 blue jackets. The iconic corduroy jackets will be given in January of 2018 at the ND FFA Winter Leadership Conferences in Bismarck, ND.
“We are so thankful for the generous donations from our supporters who make it possible to provide these members with a jacket,” says Tam Maddock, Executive Director of the ND FFA Foundation. “We’re always looking for more jacket sponsorships to help North Dakotans get their blue jacket and all the pride that comes along with it.”
If you are interested in sponsoring a jacket for a North Dakota FFA member, contact the ND FFA Foundation at 701.212.5235 or by emailing tmaddock@ndffa.org.
