This year the Battle Lake FFA chapter had 10 students receive FFA jackets and ties/scarves through the Blue Jackets Bright Futures program sponsored by the Minnesota FFA Foundation.  Donors sponsor a jacket, and the students are able to receive an FFA jacket with their name at no cost to them. The students had to complete a questionnaire where they were to exemplify what FFA means to them, why they deserved a jacket, and what they have accomplished in FFA. These students include Nick Wendland, Jonny Fielding, Kate Christensen, Kate Johansen, Nikki Jorud, Kyleigh Shebeck, Adysen Tysdal, Brodey Mekalson Ellie Gibbs, and Annika Lukken.
