It seems like the code will do a good job of finding a focussed select element, but there is nothing to trigger it. Perhaps try this:

$('div#selectbox select').focus(function(){
    $(this).parent().css('box-shadow','0 0 4px 1px #5099E2');

$('div#selectbox select').blur(function(){

If you wanted to add an check in there, you could always put in a if($(this).is(":focus")){} just to be sure. Hope that helps...
