Cookie Box Innovation Challenge Powered by Arrow Electronics: Prize Announcement

Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors are gearing up to become innovators to make the world a better place through the Cookie Box Innovation Challenge powered by Arrow Electronics! Together with Arrow Electronics, GSCO will be challenging girls to design a prototype that addresses a problem in our community and beyond using Girl Scout cookie packages and other recycled materials.

Register now and join us for the virtual kickoff on May 14, 2021!

Throughout the program,  girls will be asked to attend workshops and complete activities to get their inner innovators thinking and creating. At the end of the program, all girls who complete the activities will earn their Cookie Box Innovation Challenge patch and be invited to enter the Arrow Innovation Fair and compete for amazing prizes thanks to Arrow Electronics!

First Place: $250 and a ride in the Arrow SAM Car!

Second Place: A ride in the Arrow SAM Car!

There will be one first and second place winner in grades 6-8 and one first and second place winner in grades 6-12. The SAM Car rides will be in the Denver Metro area in late October/early November. More details will be announced prior to the Arrow Innovation Fair.

You might be asking, what on earth is the Arrow SAM Car? The Arrow SAM Car is the only car like it in the world – a Corvette modified with advanced electronics so that a former race car driver with a disability can drive the car at racetrack speeds using only head controls and voice commands. You’ll learn how advanced electronics can expand mobility for those who are disabled. You will sit in the co-driver’s seat while an Arrow engineer drives you around a closed course testing acceleration, braking, and sharp cornering. You’ll get to experience a world-class innovation firsthand in this once in a lifetime experience!
