Delaware Farm Bureau announces 2020 Blue Jacket Bonanza winners

The Delaware Farm Bureau is proud to announce its 2020 Blue Jacket Bonanza winners.

Delaware FFA members can be found learning about the business of agriculture in schools throughout Delaware. The classic blue jackets worn by FFA members are part of their official uniform and is a tradition within the organization that helps the students show off their FFA pride.

“I definitely view the blue jackets as a way of unifying our members into one group or even a family. When people see the blue jacket that has been around for decades, they feel a sense of pride and unity,” Delaware FFA Executive Secretary Amanda Powell said. “And I think when members are given the chance to get their own jackets, they feel accepted as a part of this family and are proud to wear them with their teammates.”

This year, 44 students will receive jackets from the Delaware Farm Bureau’s Blue Jacket Bonanza Wednesday, March 11, during the annual Delaware FFA State Convention. Since 2015, Delaware Farm Bureau has awarded 291 jackets totaling $17,525 through the program.
