“When I received my FFA jacket, it made me feel proud to be a part of an organization that could expand my knowledge about agriculture and leadership. It made me feel special and lucky because I was officially apart of the FFA family.”
To this FFA member, receiving their jacket was the key they needed to unlock the door to their future. By joining her local FFA chapter and being gifted a jacket, this individual was able to set herself down a path of premier leadership, personal growth and career success. It has inspired her to one day become an Agriculture teacher and FFA Advisor.
“I want to be in the classroom inspiring students to be a part of FFA and the agriculture industry because, truly, the opportunities are endless.”
This student received an FFA jacket through the Nebraska FFA Foundation’s Blue Jackets. Bright Futures. program. Each year, thanks to donors like you, students know what it’s like to be part of the FFA family.
Your gift of $100 gives one student a lifetime of opportunities.
Over 750 FFA members applied for an FFA jacket last year through the Blue Jackets. Bright Futures. program and, with your help, we were only able to award 296 jackets. The continued growth of agricultural education and FFA programs in Nebraska combined with the increased costs to purchase an FFA jacket, we expect the need to continue to grow. Our goal this year is to have 300 jackets donated.
