Amber is a Cadette Girl Scout in Troop 30222 in Pueblo, CO.  She is very excited to share what a Girl Scout Cookie can really do!

Amber will be attending “Zip Life” at Sky High Ranch.  Her goal is to sell enough cookies to earn her own way to camp.

Amber had a lot of fun creating this video.  With her friend, and troop leader, Jacque, she learned how to use different video editing software, and how green screens work!

This is my submission for the Best Cookie Video contest. I wrote the song myself. I hope to sell 275 boxes of cookies.  I’m working to earn my Silver Award. My project helps babies born too early by giving them books for their parents to read to them in the NICU. I have personal experience because my brother was born too early and I read to him. I hope you like it!

Me (Alexandra) and my sister (Ella) are in Girl Scouts this year.  This is her first year and my third year.  This year, we want to sell 1,500 boxes of cookies each!  With the money we earn from selling cookies, we get to do fun things with our troop!  We made this video to give our customers info on what to buy.  We had lots of fun making this video, but it took a lot of patience!  Hope you like it!

Cookie video contest: I love Girl Scouts

Submitted by Kayden

Thornton

Hi! My name is Kayden and this is my fifth year as a Girl Scout. Being a Girl Scout has been a great experience for me. I have met new friends and have gone to awesome places. Last year, I even got to go to camp.  My cookie goal this year is 600 packages; but I think I can sell 1,000. Selling more cookies means I can do more fun things and learn a lot.  My troops Hometown Hero is Food for Hope – our goal is to donate 400+ packages of cookies this year.  Cookies donated on my digital cookie site will go to those serving in the US military. I hope you enjoy my video!
