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!
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.
Dads are an important part of the Girl Scouts of Colorado Cookie Team. That’s why we honor dads, who help cookie bosses all across Colorado meet their goals.

This is Sienna’s second year selling cookies and this typically quiet girl turns into a super seller who knows her product well. She is earning credit for first overnight camp and cookies her local fire department. She is looking forward to both!
Daisy Girl Scout Isabelle tends to be shy in public, but has quite the personality in front of the camera! We combined her love of silly snapchat filters and Girl Scout Cookies to make this video to help her sell when she feels shy asking! Her personal cookie goal is 175 packages!
My favorite Star Wars character has always been Princess Leia. I was very sad when my mom told me that the actress who played her died in December. I thought having a booth decorated as Star Wars this year would be a great way to honor her. I think she should be made into an honorary Girl Scout! May the force be with you!
