Several girls from Troop 73392 used their cookie money to visit New York City this month. Sophia led her fellow troop members in picking out accommodations, places to eat, and things to see and do in the city.
Highlights included mastering the public transportation system, visiting the National September 11th Museum, the Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island, Coney Island, and eating lots of yummy food.
155 Girl Scouts and guests gathered on Saturday, June 17, 2017 at the Colorado Renaissance Festival in Larkspur to celebrate Top Sellers who sold 750 packages or more of Girl Scout Cookies during the 2017 Girl Scout Cookie Sale Program. Top Sellers and their guests enjoyed the festival’s many shows and attractions while also being treated to a King’s and Jester’s Feast buffet, during which the girls were presented with their Top Seller medallions by the GSCO Product Sales staff. The Renaissance Festival event was attended by 14 of the state’s top 100 sellers for the 2017 sale.
Troop Leaders Jenn Shroyer and Shannon Michel had a pie in the face challenge for their Girl Scout Cadettes. If each Girl Scout beat their individual cookie goal and the troop beat their troop goal, each girl could hit the leader with a pie. The troop’s goal was 4,000 packages of Girl Scout Cookies. The troop sold 5,148 with over 500 packages in donations and we got a face full of pies!
Two years ago, the amazing girls in Troop 607 decided to go to Yellowstone National Park. To ensure every girl in the troop could attend, each girl had to sell 292 packages of Girl Scout Cookies, 5,500 packages. The girls surpassed this goal by 2,000 packages!
19 girls and 11 adults made the trip for four days and three nights. They stayed just steps away from Old Faithful and Mammoth Hot Springs. The girls hiked and saw geysers, gorgeous hot spring pools, buffalo, bears, elk, and more.
The best part is there were no televisions, phones, very limited cellular service, or WIFI!
Congratulations to Troop 41625 from Monument! These Girl Scouts are among the winners in Girl Scouts of the USA’s Cookie Troop 100 Challenge.
In celebration of 100 years of Girl Scouts selling cookies, nearly 5,000 troops participated in GSUSA’s Cookie Troop 100 Challenge.
Go-getting troops set their goals and told GSUSA how they planned to put their cookie money to good use. Girl Scouts earned their Cookie Business badge and asked 100 new customers to buy cookies. And to make things extra fun, troops blinged their booths and shared photos of their creativity!
Now that the entry period has closed, GSUSA has randomly selected one troop from each participating council to receive $100 toward its awesome Take Action or service project. And one VERY lucky troop will win $3,000 to superpower its project!
To see all of the 2017 Cookie Troop 100 winners, go to the GSUSA blog.
Daisy Troop 65856 used the money they earned from their Girl Scout Cookies sales to go to Sky High Ranch as a troop. Each girl got to bring one parent and enjoyed activities such as the small animal farm, hiking to the lake, a dance party, and a camp fire. This was the highlight of the year for most girls.
Troop 942 sold 5,000 packages of Girl Scout Cookies this year. We used the cookie money for fun and for good! We have so many animal lovers in the troop, we decided to go hang out with them. We went to Cheyenne Mountain Zoo as a troop for their Wild Night. We had an educational zoo tour, which included feeding the giraffes. We learned how zoos across the U.S. work together to protect animals. We have an awesome troop!
