We’re a little more than halfway through this year’s Cookie Program! Have you met your Cookie Goals yet? We recently chatted with three of our top selling girls from last year, and they shared their tips for success, and their inspiration to meet (and beat) their goals:
Katarina S., Troop 89 - 3,167 boxes sold in 2018 (GSTF's top-seller)
Be polite and do not be afraid to ask everyone.
To fundraise as much as possible for the troop so we can go on fun adventures and to also do some cool community service projects.
Amelia M., Troop 26 - 2,024 boxes sold in 2018
Don’t let a single customer get past you. Pay attention to every single person as a potential customer and ask everyone. At cookie booths, enthusiasm and manners are everything!
The very first year that I reached 1000, I remember how amazing that felt. So now each year I try to beat myself from the prior year. It’s an amazing feeling when you sell 1000 or more boxes. I also love those cookie bucks!! I am a Girl Scout summer camp lover, and the cookie bucks help me get there.
Katerina M., Troop 252 - 1,561 boxes sold in 2018
Work hard at your cookie booths and ask family and friends to help you.
My troop wants to go to Iceland and Ireland for a summer trip and selling cookies is how I can afford to go on the trip. Three years ago we went to London, Paris and Switzerland and it was one of the best trips in Girl Scouts I have done.
