The Delaware Farm Bureau offers various programs, funded by our membership dues, that encourage students to get involved in agriculture. Check out our current programs listed below:
The Blue Jacket Bonanza Program was developed to provide high school students involved in the FFA, who do not have the financial means, a chance to earn their own blue jacket. A jacket will be awarded on a one time basis per student. To be granted a jacket the students will be required to complete an application process which entails a written essay, a letter of reference, and evidence of community service.

Every summer, the Delaware Farm Bureau offers a Summer Internship Program that gives undergraduate students the opportunity to work within the agricultural industry and see what it has to offer!
Past interns have assisted in visiting farms to promote on our social media channels, interviewing farmers to help share their story with public, educated children on the importance of Delaware Agriculture through the DEFB Foundation Mobile Ag Lab and more!
