Thank you to all the Girl Scouts who entered this year’s contest for Best Cookie Video. We received nearly a dozen entries from across Colorado and are so impressed by your creativity and enthusiasm.
Third Place- $50 in Cookie Credits
Hailey from Arvada is a second-year Brownie. Last year, she sold 800 packages and this year (at last check), she is only 50 packages away from her goal of 1,000 packages. She plans to use the Cookie Credits she won to go to “Dusty Boots” at Tomahawk Ranch this summer.
Second Place- $100 in Cookie Credits
Ashla F. is from GSCO’s Northern & Northeastern CO region. She also plans to use the Cookie Credits she won to go to Tomahawk Ranch this summer.
First Place- $200 in Cookie Credits
Mia from Fort Carson is a gifted, STEM-loving Brownie who loves crafting stories. She plans to use the Cookie Credits she earned to go to a “Me & My Gal” camp.
We decided to make a video about our cookie selling. We are three sisters who are all Girl Scouts so we have to sell together most of the time and this is what it looks like when we go out. We’re trying to sell 1,000 boxes of cookies this year.
Alice is a 7th grade Girl Scout Cadette at Campus Middle School. Her troop completed the “aMAZE!” Journey and she is working towards earning a Silver Award. The troop’s Hometown Hero is Meals on Wheels.
Sophie is a 6th grade Girl Scout Cadette at Campus. She also does Outdoor Adventure Club and her troop hopes to camp this spring. Hometown hero is the military.
Clara is a 4th grade Girl Scout Junior at Willow Creek Elementary. Her troop is doing the new Outdoor Journey and hoping to do a few camping trips this year. The troop’s Hometown Hero is foster families.
My name is Sofia and I’m a Junior. This is my fourth year selling cookies. I wanted to make a video for other Girl Scouts so that they can learn some tips for selling cookies. I wanted them to learn about what the Girl Scout Cookies taste like, and I wanted to inspire people with my video so I can accomplish my goal and help other girls to accomplish theirs.
I learned how to use my Google Drive to make the Selling Cookies video. My mom also showed me how to use Quick Time to make a screen video of my Google Slide presentation. I enjoyed making the video.
We love to adventure and are focused on learning about the outdoors! This year, we have been exploring our local environment in Colorado. With our cookie money, we are planning to go to Costa Rica so we can learn about a tropical place and experience the outdoors in a different place. We hope you will help us get to our goal!
I started Girl Scouts as a Juliette when I was a Daisy. My second year as a Girl Scout Brownie, I was finally able to find a troop in Greeley. We have a great time doing crafts, learning new things, like rock climbing and making slime, and even go on adventures like horseback riding. My goal this year is to sell at least 500 packages of cookies. Last year, I was one of the top 100 sellers in Colorado and got to go to a special event that was really cool. I am using my cookie money to help me go to Girl Scout Camp and our troop is wanting to learn more about archery and get babysitter and First Aid and CPR certified too!
Hailey is in her second year of selling Girl Scout Cookies and has big goals. She is trying to sell 1,000 packages of cookies to go to horse camp this year. Last year, she was a big help in getting her first year troop to cookie camp and they all had so much fun. This year, they would like to plan a camping trip for their troop and a sister troop. She loves taking the lead in her business and being a great Girl Scout.
She is a go-getter because she does not let the weather stop her, and she works every booth she can to ensure her troop reaches their goals.
She is an innovator because she encourages her troop to dance and sing cookie songs at booths. She finds people would rather buy from Girl Scouts who are really enjoying selling cookies.
She is a risk-taker because she always puts her self out there and supports her troop by helping teach the younger and new girls some of her tips and tricks.
She is a leader because she is always ready to help get her troop going and coming up with new ideas.
My name is Alivia, this is my 3rd year as a Girl Scout and I love it. My troop is always doing things to help our community just last December we donated a scarf to every resident at Mantey Heights Nursing Home. It makes me really proud to be a part of a troop that really cares for others.
This cookie season my troop has a big goal of 6,755 packages. My personal goal is 2,050 packages. We would love to use our earnings for an energy saving project we are working on, gift packages for Mantey Heights Nursing Home, and to go to an official Girl Scout camp. I hope it’s a science camp.
To kick off the Girl Scout Cookie Program, we made a little video of Hazel’s first Girl Scout cookie taste test! As a first-year Brownie, she had never been exposed to all of the different flavors so before she got out to sell them, she wanted to try them. This video has increased her sales dramatically. Our troop cookie sales goal is 900 and we’re well on our way!
Mia is a gifted, STEM-loving, introverted Brownie who loves crafting stories. For the Fall Product Program, she created a skit with some of her toys because she didn’t want to appear on camera, and she decided to do something similar for cookie season. I helped her film it, but the concept, script, and voice/acting is all her. She drew upon the theme for sales and set her video at the beach, with a hidden appearance from a certain sea turtle, and a cameo from “S’mores,” the mascot from the Fall Product Program (not the actual stuffed animal, but a brown rabbit finger puppet we got at the Fountain Creek Nature Center when we went for our hiking and bugs badges.)
As Mia’s mom, I’ve watched Girl Scouts give her the confidence to use her skills, and take risks. As her troop leader, I’ve seen her ambition for reaching her goals pay off. I never would have guessed that she would have an interest in selling or talking to new people, let alone go above and beyond on her own volition. It’s been an amazing adventure to witness!
