Best Cookie Dad contest: Why my dad is the best cookie dad

Submitted by Maddie G.

Our dad has four Girl Scouts this year: a Cadette, Junior, Brownie, and Daisy. He helped us walk through the neighborhood with our cookie powered wagon. He helped us at cookie booths, too. When we needed to make change for customers, he was patient while we did our math. Most dads can’t say they are the best cookie dad, but our dad is!

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: Troop Cookie Dad of the year

Lauren: This is my dad’s third year as my troop’s cookie manager. He’s also been our cookie coach every year! He helps my troop make sure we all have enough cookies to sell to reach our goals, helps shuttle cookies to all the booths, and makes sure we know what to say at the booths to our customers. He does a really good job and my troop leaders love him, too! He takes me to his morning networking meetings so I can do my cookie sales pitch and sell to all of his friends- that’s awesome because I’ve gotten to sell a lot of cookies that way! Our dad’s awesome!

Taylor: When I first started selling cookies, I was very quiet and not very sure of myself. My dad worked on my cookie sales pitch with me, practiced what to say if someone says no, and helped me build up my confidence. He’s funny and always knows how to help keep me going!

Troop 60632’s S’mores success story

Troop 60632 from Castle Rock showcased Girl Scout S’mores at all four of their booths during National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend! They had a cute sign and would tell customers, “These are the $4 cookies (pointing to their rainbow) and these are our $5 S’mores cookie. It’s our special centennial cookie. And, if you put one in the microwave for 20 seconds before eating it, it is fantastic!”

They sold 21 packages at one booth and 17 at another!

The troop’s Hometown Hero is the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department. The girls are also planning two camping trips this spring and summer with the money they earn from selling cookies.

My dad supports me when I am selling Girl Scout Cookies. He is there when I need help. I know that he is there for me when I need him. He has helped me do cookie booths and door-to-door sales. I’m happy when he helps me sell cookies. He has helped me sell cookies for three years now. He likes to buy cookies from me and eat them too!

Best Cookie Dad contest: Super dads from Montrose

Submitted by Lyndi Schieldt

Montrose

Look at this booth and how awesome it is to see these two excited Girl Scout Daisies when you walk into the Montrose Walmart. But, it’s not just the cookies they are excited about, it’s the men who play an active roll in their Girl Scout experience, and support these future women to be outgoing, honest, fair, and kind. These men are patient as the girls are figuring out how much money the customer owes, and as the girls count the money back to them as well. If you notice one of the dads also has a three-month-old baby (future Girl Scout) strapped to his chest. These men do not let anything get in their way to be able to support their girls in reaching their cookie goals.

Best Cookie Dad contest: My amazing Cookie Dad

My name is Kenzie. My dad, Shaun, is the most amazing cookie dad because he works from 3 a.m. to 4 p.m. and still finds time to go door-to-door with me. He delivers cookies to all his work friends and helps me become the top seller in my troop. That is why my dad is the most amazing cookie dad.

Best Cookie Dad contest: Our “Cookie Man”

We have nicknamed him “Cookie Man” and he is the best. He is our troop’s biggest cheerleader! He isn’t afraid to be silly and show us that it’s okay to do the same. He gives really good advice and is always trying to help us reach our goals, not just at cookie time, but always.

He gives a lot of his time and energy to our troop and Girl Scouts. He volunteers to help with cookie pick-up day at the cupboard getting other troops their cookies and then makes sure each of us is set up too. When we did our Powder Puff Derby, he helped us with our car designs and supported us while we ran the show. At our drive-thru cookie booth, he got all of us energized (the sign twirling he’s got down, but we’re helping him with his high kick).

We wanted to share how much we appreciate him because he genuinely wants all of us to succeed. It’s good to have someone like that in your corner.

My dad, Chris, works at night driving a semi-truck. When he comes home, he takes me door-to-door to sell cookies. One time my mom wasn’t feeling well, so my dad took me and helped me sell lots of cookies. We even sold a whole case of Thin Mints. I love my Dad.
