Repost: GS Blog

Cookie Troop 100

In honor of the 100th anniversary of the first known sale of cookies by Girl Scouts, we’re taking #BlingYourBooth to a whole new level by inviting you to be a part of the new Cookie Troop 100.

Here’s how:

  • Set a troop goal and share the plan for your cookie money—what amazing stuff will you do to improve your community this year?
  • Earn a Cookie Business badge—you can take your pick!
  • As a troop, ask 100 new customers to buy cookies.
  • Bling Your Booth. Gather your troop and get those creative juices flowing to come up with a fun theme—a party, a race, a cookie disco—what will it be? You can even give it a Cookie Troop 100 twist. Just remember to snap a cool photo! Don't forget to enter GSWCF's local Bling Your Booth challenge too!
  • Submit your entry by April 30, 2017. 

What troops can win: 
One lucky troop from every council around the country will win $100 to put toward its awesome cookie Take Action or service project. And one very lucky troop will win $3,000 to super power its project! 

Winning troops will be randomly selected—no voting necessary!

Every participant will also unlock her very own Cookie Troop 100 patchEnter the Cookie Troop 100 Challenge today!

2. Upload a selfie using #gsCookieBoss and tagging @girlscouts.
3. Share how you’re a Girl Scout cookie boss by telling us how you overcome challenges, build your confidence, learn awesome new skills, and take the lead through your cookie sales.
4. Once you receive a confirmation message, claim your post to complete your entry.

All participants will be featured in a fun gallery, and five lucky winners will be randomly selected to win an awesome camera bundle pack and a special prize from Stella & Dot. Each winner will also be highlighted on our social channels and blog!

The sweepstakes will be open until March 24, 2017, and one winner will be selected weekly starting February 24.
