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.

2019 Best Cookie Dad contest: Cookie Dad on furlough

Submitted by Eavan, Girl Scout Brownie

Metro Denver

Arvada

My dad is the best cookie dad! He took on the role of cookie manager and then the government shutdown happened, so he was not working for 35 days! During that time, he worked so hard to make our cookie sales a success. He helped set up booths, including fun cookie sales at our school pick-up car line and at a locally owned restaurant! He’s been a great leader and I am proud of my 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.

Be booth ready

While your girls and their families are out and about selling Girl Scout Cookies, they often get asked about Girl Scouting in general, and we want everyone to know that Girl Scouts is about so much more than selling cookies! Let’s show all our cookie customers how the world’s largest girl-led entrepreneurial program prepares girls to lead, learn, and succeed all while making it possible for them to embark on amazing adventures, form a lifetime of memories and unleash the power of G.I.R.L. (go-getters, innovators, risk-takers, leaders)™ to change the world. Share this two-sided sheet with girls and families for tips on how to answer “Why Girl Scouts?” like a pro! Troop volunteers can also take a look at this Booth Essentials sheet to prepare for scenarios that sometimes come up while selling cookies.

Don’t forget Digital Cookie

Remind the girls in your troop that Digital Cookie is an easy way to add to your sales. Girls can add a video message or a photo, share their goals and what they’re learning by selling cookies, then share their digital cookie link with friends and family, even those living in other states.
