2019 Best Cookie Video contest: Claire’s cookie video

Submitted by Claire

I am a brand-new Daisy in a brand-new troop in Colorado, Troop 47189. I got the flu the first day of cookie season and couldn’t go door-to-door, so my mom and I made this video while I was home from school. I love to cook with my mom and we make yummy recipes together. My goal is to sell 180 packages, so I can get the leopard keychain and tin. My troop goal is 672 packages. We are going to spend, save, and share our cookie money. We’ll spend a third of it on a horseback riding/pizza party, and an ice cream party since some of the girls didn’t want to go horseback riding. We’ll save a third for troop supplies, and we’ll share a third this summer by doing a Take Action project when we do our first Journey.

2019 Best Cookie Video contest: Sonja’s cookie video

Submitted by Sonja

I’m really excited to enter my cookie video this year. I’m 10-years-old and am in fifth grade.  I’ve been in Girl Scouts for four years and have been participating in cookie sales all four years.

My cookie goal is 500 packages, but I know I’ll sell more anyway.  I worked really hard on this video with my dad.  I hope that everyone will have as much fun watching it, as I did making it.  I’m off to sell some more cookies to reach my goal and to raise money for our troop.
