2019 Bling Your Booth Challenge: The winners are…

Thank you to all of the Girl Scouts who entered the 2019 Bling Your Booth Challenge! We received dozens of entries from all across Colorado and are so impressed by your creativity and enthusiasm. Congratulations to the following winners!

Third Place: $50 in Cookie Credits 

Troop 41660 from Ft. Carson in the Pikes Peak region is brave, and who they are meant to be! The troop wanted everyone to know that they are strong, beautiful, loving people. Their goal is to sell 10,000 packages of cookies and go camping before a bunch of the girls have to move.

Second Place: $100 in Cookie Credits

Troop 78526 is a multi-level troop with Daisies through Cadettes. This year, troop leaders offered the Brownies, Juniors, and Cadettes a chance to do an overnight trip to NASA in Houston. Daisies will get an overnight trip to the Denver Aquarium. These Girl Scouts have been so motivated to sell their cookies to earn the money for these experiences! Their troop goal is to sell 10,000 packages of Girl Scout Cookies.

Winner: $200 in Cookie Credits

A number of girls in Cadette Troop 59 from Lone Tree have an interest in sewing and appreciation for things homemade.  It’s fitting that their booth was made of homemade created bunting, a large cookie fabric panel, and Girl Scout fabric money aprons.

Their goals are raising funds for a five-day troop camp in northern Colorado, travel outside of the state, and collecting Hometown Heroes cookies for professionals in oncology.

2019 Best Cookie Dad contest: How my dad became a Girl Scout

It started in the year of 2018 and he froze his butt off to help me with cookies. Last year, when my goal was 1,500, I got to 1,674 and that would not have happened if it was not for my dad. He has always said he would help me to the best of his ability. Even now in 2019 with his new job, he is still taking and using his weekends and days off to come help me sell!

My goal this year is 2,000 and his exact words were, “I’m gonna help you reach your goal as long as you try.”

He is limited to the days he has off work to the hours he takes out of his time. He is always helping me and trying to make me/help me get to my goal. I love you dad.

2019 Best Cookie Dad contest: Dad leads the pack

Grand Junction

Ryan is our troop’s Cookie Dad. He volunteered for this position after joining our troop. He had previous experience doing it for a smaller troop, but he made the jump to managing almost 30 girls and their cookies. He works full-time, so balancing Cookie Dad too is no easy feat! He even rented a giant Uhaul for cookie delivery to make it easier on the other volunteers. He has worked so hard and it’s just the beginning of the season. Our troop is so lucky to have Ryan as a part of our team!

Ryan was a go-getter when he organized cookie pick-up and did it all on his own! He is a leader by selecting as many booth sites as he can to help our girls reach their goals! He takes risks by jumping in to help and never looking back. He is using innovation skills to manage the girls’ cookies, money, orders, and work with parents—all with a smile on his face!

2019 Best Cookie Dad contest: My dancing dad

My dad says to just have fun with it. He dances and acts goofy – and that gets cars to stop at our booth and buy cookies. He is awesome and makes all the hard work fun!

I am nine and a Junior, but I can be shy. Cookies have helped me get tons more comfortable talking to people.

2019 Best Cookie Video contest: Jordyn’s cookie video

My name is Jordyn. I am 11-years-old and I did a cookie video with my younger sister, Madelynne, who is 9-years-old. The song in the video is what we sing at our booths. It’s cool to hear it echo downtown and it attracts a lot of customers. We like to sing and dance at our booths to get customers’ attention and to stay warm.

Our cookie goals this year are 2,000 packages each! We really want to attend two camps this summer and selling that many packages would help get us there! We made a plan with our parents and we are ready to reach the goals we have made. It’s a lot of hard work but we won’t give up.

2019 Best Cookie Video contest: Sonja’s cookie video

Submitted by Sonja

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.

2019 Best Cookie Video contest: Andie’s cookie video

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.

2019 Best Cookie Dad contest: Cookie Dad on furlough

My dad is the best cookie dad! He took on the role of cookie manager and then the government shutdown happened, so he was not working for 35 days! During that time, he worked so hard to make our cookie sales a success. He helped set up booths, including fun cookie sales at our school pick-up car line and at a locally owned restaurant! He’s been a great leader and I am proud of my dad!
