The junior version of DELF is perfectly fit to teenagers between 12 and 18 years old in middle and high-school. The DELF junior version has the same basic structure as the standard DELF. Only the topics are different: the materials take into account the interests of young people. The diploma's value is the exact same as the standard DELF. Indeed, just as the other types of DELF, the DELF junior version is based on the principles and levels defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for languages (CEFR). There are 4 different levels, A1, A2, B1 & B2. There is no specific mention on the diploma. Just like the standard DELF, it is a diploma of French language which is issued. Thus it is impossible to tell the difference between a DELF junior version diploma and a standard DELF diploma.
