Thank you to all of the Girl Scouts who entered the 2018 Girl Scout S’mores Booth Challenge! We received dozens of entries from all across Colorado and are so impressed by your creativity and enthusiasm. Congratulations to the winners!

Girl Scout Brownie Troop 60061 is from Broomfield and their Hometown Hero is Broomfield FISH. The girls are in the second and third grade at Prospect Ridge Academy and Meridian Elementary School. Most of the girls set a goal of at least 150 packages of Girl Scout Cookies. They are hoping to use the money earned to do an overnight at the Denver Aquarium.

Girl Scout Brownie Troop 60035 is from Aurora. The girls chose Joshua Station as their Hometown. Their troop goal was 225 packages per selling girl and they surpassed it! At last check, the troop had sold more than 10,000 packages.

 

 

Best Cookie Dad contest: Best Girl Scout Cookie Dad

I have the best stepdad ever. He is at every meeting with my troop. I am a first-year Girl Scout and he has been to four booths with me and we are doing four more together. We have filled up our car and ride around with cookies and are always ready to sell! I am lucky to have John as a second dad, but even more excited he is a Girl Scout Dad! I can’t wait for adventures this summer too!

Best Cookie Dad contest: Cookie dad kick-off

My dad is always there to encourage me, help me, and congratulate me, and that’s why I think he’s the Best Cookie Dad. When I told him I wanted to be a Girl Scout, he said, “I think you’d be an amazing Girl Scout!”

When I told him I wanted to sleep over at the Girl Scout Pajama Jam, he said, “Sounds like fun, let’s all do it!”

And, when I told him I wanted to be the cookie top seller in my troop, he said, “Of course! I know you can do it.”

The first weekend of Girl Scout cookie season, my mom, who is a troop leader, was out of town. My dad drove an hour away to borrow a truck to help pick up our troop’s cookies from Elitch Gardens, and then he spent almost the whole day helping our cookie mom sort and hand out cookies.

The next day was Super Bowl Sunday, one of his favorite days of the year. But, we got up early to be the first ones in line at Sweet Cow Ice Cream, and I sold two cases of Samoas to them! Then, he helped me carry all the cookies in to sell at the Super Bowl party later that day, too.

When I told him I wanted to sell cookies at a booth, he stayed up late to help me paint and assemble a cookie booth out of crates. I know I’m going to be the top seller in my troop thanks to my dad.

My dad is the best helper. When we sell cookies, he’s always helping me haul them around and set up booths. This year on Super bowl Sunday, we walked the neighborhood before the big game. I sold a lot with his help delivering the cookies and keeping track of the money. My dad has always been a big helper when I do cookies every year. Last year, he sat with me at the booths when I sold even though it was cold. Last year, he made my booth a cool cookie banner. I loved it. This year, we are signed up for lots of booths. My dad will be with me there to sell. I know I will hit my goal with his help. He has been an awesome Girl Scout dad since I started as a Daisy.

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.

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!

Best Cookie Video contest: Hailey’s cookie video

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.
