Best Cookie Dad for 2020

Submitted by Colbie Poirier

When my dad went to the cookie booth with me, mom already teased him and said that dad would have to be the dinosaur. I did not think he would volunteer, but when my troop leader asked, he stepped right up! My dad waved and attracted lots of customers. He really deserves to be named Best Cookie Dad!

Dads are an important part of the Girl Scouts of Colorado Cookie Team. That’s why we honor dads who help Girl Scouts all across Colorado meet their goals. Tell us about what makes your dad an awesome Cookie Dad and he could win a cool prize.

Greeley Fire and Rescue at our cookie booth

Submitted by Danielle Wilson

Tearyn (Girl Scout Junior) was at a King Soopers site. It was cold, but she pushed on. A group of firefighters came in to do some shopping for their fire station. She didn’t know they actually lived in the station for several days at a time, because they’re ALWAYS on call. Day or night they’re ready to help anyone in need. It could be a serious fire or a minor injury, it doesn’t matter, they’re ready in an instant.

About Tearyn: I am a go-getter because I reached out and asked for a picture. I am an innovator because I designed my booth, made a reversible tablecloth, and I am always thinking of new ways to make more sales. I am a risk-taker because I’m willing to try new things to see if they will work. Challenges motovate me! I AM A LEADER! I encourage other booths that set up after mine. In my troop, I love helping others with projects and in school I help classmates. I even won the principals award (again) at school for being “open minded” this time.

The amazing, wonderful leader and cookie dad

Submitted by Adaline K.

My dad has been my troop leader for three years.

He helps me by going door-to-door with me in my neighborhood and my grandpa and grandma’s neighborhood to sell cookies and meet my goal.

My dad supports me and my troop by teaching us and helping my confidence.

Uniform to Uniform in Steamboat Springs

Steamboat Springs

A police officer visited our cookie booth. She wanted to purchase a package of cookies. We had just had a customer donate 19 Hometown Hero packages!!! We tried to give her one, but she insisted on purchasing a package to support us. We were so thrilled. We discussed with her about running an event to visit the police station and doing any activities we want to earn an award. We are so excited for this opportunity and can’t wait to make it a reality. Our Hometown Heroes really are our heroes!

These wonderful military men came in to City Market on Valentine’s Day night dressed in full uniform to do shopping. They were kind enough to pose with me to earn my Uniform to Uniform patch.

I love the adventure of being a Girl Scout, meeting new people, and trying new things.

Westminster H.S. culinary students host cooking challenge featuring Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scouts of Colorado partnered with Christopher Hill, ProStart/culinary arts teacher at Westminster High School, to host a cooking challenge featuring Girl Scout Cookies in February 2020. Students created dishes, which could not be desserts, and competed against each other in small contests with their classmates. On February 19, the winners of the class competitions competed in a final round. Students had one hour to prepare and present their dishes for judging. The winner was Trefoil Shepherd’s Pie (click link for recipe and see below for more recipes)! Students in the engineering department also used their 3D printer to create the trophies for the winners.

Thanks to CBS4/KCNC-TV, Fox31/KDVR-TV, and Colorado Community Media for joining us for the event!
