Far beyond a requirement for Official Dress, an FFA corduroy jacket is an article of faith, honor and pride—unifying members in a long-standing tradition and reminding them that they are part of something larger than themselves. Let’s give every member the chance to be part of the tradition.

About

With generous gifts, National FFA Organization is able to gift jackets to members who would not otherwise be able to own their own jacket. As we celebrate 80 years of the official jacket, we know that symbolic blue corduroy is far more than Official Dress, but an icon of your American tradition—instilling pride and responsibility in those who wear it. Let’s share the gift.



Apply

  1. The Give the Gift of Blue application process is now open. First Log in to AgCN and then click on the "Give the Gift of Blue" banner to proceed. (Members must be registered in AgCN to apply. If you have issues logging in, please work with your advisor.)
  2. Once members submit their applications the status of the application will be assigned a "Submitted" status. The applications will be forwarded to the approval advisor selected on the application.
  3. Advisors will need to follow the instructions on their email to approve the application. Once the advisor has reviewed the application and clicked on the approved button, the request for a jacket will go into a queue. The application status will change to "Pending." A confirmation email will be sent to the member that they have been advisor approved.
  4. The application will stay in "Pending" until funds are available to order the jackets. Currently there is $15,000 available to distribute jackets with a commitment from RAM for an additional $25,000 that will be paid quarterly in 2014.
  5. Members and advisors will be able to check the status of their applications by logging into AgCN and clicking on the Give the Gift of Blue banner on the opening page. Your status will be noted at the top or your application. Once the status of the application has changed to "Ordered" you will receive a jacket confirmation letting you know the jacket has been ordered. When the jacket has been shipped you will be sent a shipping confirmation allowing you to track the arrival of your jacket. You can expect to receive your jacket within 10-14 days.
