What does the FFA jacket mean to you?
The official FFA jacket was introduced and accepted by the delegates at the 1933 National FFA Convention. So if you do the math, this fall, we will celebrate the 80th anniversary of the blue corduroy jacket we all love so much!
We’re planning a big story in FFA New Horizons about the jacket, and we want your help! Tell us your feelings about the FFA jacket – in words, photos or video. The best responses will be featured in the print magazine, in our mobile app and on the FFA New Horizons website.
Visit FFANewHorizons.org to learn more.
Have an FFA member in your chapter with some musical talents? Make sure they apply to be a part of the National FFA Band, Chorus and Talent at the 86th National FFA Convention & Expo in Louisville. New this year: the first National FFA Talent competition! Applications due July 15.
