Congratulations to our top sellers! 

Breanna W

Girl Scout Senior,  Breana W. of Beautiful Waters service unit was our top seller, selling 6,250 boxes

" The key to my success is to never give up, I go to school then, I sell! Your repeat customers are your best customers; even if they only buy one box from you. It is important to let them know that you remember them by going back asking them the next year because chances are they have not forgotten you!"

Tips for future top sellers:

  1. Always remind yourself of your goals! If you forget what you are working towards then you won't try as hard to get towards your goal. 
  2. A no is just a no; you cannot let it defeat you because you are one-step closer to someone saying yes!
Katherine M

The second highest seller was Katherine M. of Magical Dreamers 3,511 boxes.

"We get everyone in the family involved...But most important is that during the booths she stays positive and motivated and kindly asks every person if they want to buy cookies"

 

 

Tips for future top sellers:

  1. Set a goal from the beginning, then sell one cookie box at a time.
  2.  Be polite and respectful and even when people don't buy anything you should still thanks them. 
  3. Use your support network of Scouts, friends and family to reach your goal.
Jessica W

The third highest seller was Jessica W. of Circle of Springs who sold 2,706 boxes.

" I always pick a goal and never give up.  I work lots of booth sales and have cookies with me every where I go."

Tips for future top sellers:
1. Make Videos.
2. Show respect to customers.
3. Help others with their sales.

Thank you to all the Service Unit Cookie Managers, Troop Cookie Chairs, Troop Leaders, and parents that made this year's Girl Scout Cookie Program possible for our girls. The program could not have happened without your support.

Cookies Power Amazing Adventures for Girls

When you buy a box of delicious Girl Scout Cookies, you’re powering amazing, year-round experiences for every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) extraordinaire in your community who sells them—that’s right, proceeds stay local and are reinvested in girls!

Big picture: as a cookie customer, you’re actually helping the next generation of female entrepreneurs get an important taste of what it takes to be successful—teamwork, planning, and a positive outlook. Beyond that, you’re actually narrowing the gender gap in entrepreneurship by nurturing girls’ skills early and often. How awesome is that?

Whether it’s a trip to a breathtaking place she’s never been, a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) project that will change the way she thinks about the world, or an opportunity to attend Girl Scout camp and revel in the power of the great outdoors, at Girl Scouts every experience helps her unleash her  G.I.R.L. spirit to do amazing things for herself and her community and grow into the incredible woman she’s destined to become.

But wait, there’s more! By selling cookies, girls develop five essential skills—goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics—all of which help them succeed today and in the future. They grow their confidence and practice leadership, too.

What an experience! That’s why the Girl Scout Cookie Program focuses on her—because it’s about so much more than delicious treats. It’s about supporting girls’ success through the biggest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world—SWEET!
