Power of cookie: Confidence

My name is Ellie, and I have always been shy. Girl Scouts taught me many things. However, it has mainly taught me to be confident. I am able to talk in front of crowds and sell cookies to strangers. I love being a Girl Scout.

Vivienne is a Daisy who hopes to sell more cookies than she did last year, over 200, and is helping her troop collect socks for the homeless.  She is learning how to make stop motion videos from her older brother so she can find ways to share her creative ideas and hopes to be an artist someday.

Cookie video contest: Take a Cookie

Submitted  by Lily

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!

Hello! I am Stella, and I am pleased to announce that I have just finished my Silver Award project! What I did for my Silver Award project is winterize the rabbit hutches at the Urban Farm at Stapleton. First, we assessed what needed to be done, then made the necessary purchases, which consisted of insulating foam and plexiglass. Then, we attached the foam to the sides of the cage with screws and a drill. Upon realizing that some sheets of plexiglass were either too large or too small, we returned them. We made a lot of returns! What I learned from this is: how to handle a drill safely, communicate effectively, and make plans.

Cookie video contest: Want to buy some cookies?

Submitted by Melinda

Isabelle is crazy excited about her first year selling cookies! Even though she’s only 6, she went door-to-door the first day for four hours until she sold out. After a refill from the troop, she went out the next two days again until she was sold out once more. This time we had to wait until a shipment arrived on Friday. So, she was taking orders to deliver on Friday and making plans for selling all weekend. The best part is her attitude. She’s so sweet about it. Just skips right up, and with a big smile says, “Hi, I’m Isabelle. Would you like to buy some cookies?” And it’s super funny anytime the response is “I’m sorry, I don’t have any cash.” To which she replies, “That’s ok. We take credit cards.” lol Then, even if they say “No.” she just smiles and says, “Ok. Have a great day!” and skips away. It’s so precious.
