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.
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.
This video is by Andie B., a Girl Scout Brownie in Parker. This is Andie’s third year as a Girl Scout. She planned the video herself, recruiting help from her family only to act and film. Andie’s personal sales goal this year is 750 packages. Her Brownie troop is planning to go cabin camping and hopes to take a trip to a waterpark. They’re also planning to help homeless animals this year with their cookie earnings.

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.

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.
