Simone-Cookie-Diaries.jpg

Simone is a Girl Scout Junior in Troop 9151 and is excited about earning money to go on a troop trip with her friends by selling cookies. She feels that going on trips with a group of her friends would not be possible if she did not sell cookies. Simone says, "When you sell cookies, you get to tell people what you think. It gives you courage to ask questions and be out with other people."

Simone has set a cookie goal of 2,000 boxes which will earn her the pearl pendant necklace that she admires. She didn't meet her 2,000 boxes goal last year. But says she wants to challenge herself again this year because "you never know what you can do until you do it."

Simone loves earning patches and says that girls should appreciate their patches. This year, she wants to supply cookies to military troops by earning the Cookie Share patch saying, "It's a good thing for the world because when you are nice the niceness spreads."

Cookie sales are a good way to give young girls the foundation to be outgoing and wonderful sales persons. It gave me confidence because it pushed me to go up to people and ask if they wanted to buy my product. Now that I am 11 (almost 12) I am very outgoing. Also, I find it fun to yell out "Girl Scout cookies for sale!".

Spending time with friends at cookie booths is always a blast, but my favorite part is that it helps out a charity with the donations that we receive. Our Troop for example, Troop 9192, is donating to our Senior Center. So it proves to those very few who think that Girl Scouts don't really help out our community like we say, that we really do help our community. How many kids can say that they have been a tremendous help to the community? A few, but Girl Scouts do it all of the time!

Hello, my name is Cheyenne and I am a Cadet Girl Scout and Press Rep. I am going to talk about Girl Scout cookies. My favorites are Caramel Delights, Lemonades and Thanks-a-Lots. I guess I love them because I love chocolaty, soft, melt-in-your-mouth kind of cookies. Lemonade cookies bring summer-like comfort to winter and spring.

I also love selling Girl Scout cookies! Before cookie sales start, we go to classes about how to count money, count back change, make deposits and keep track of how much we sold. This also helps in school math classes. But that's not all... I love to interact with people. We always greet our customers with a big smile. A smile can make people very happy just like OUR COOKIES can. So stay happy and enjoy!

 

Brianna-new.jpgHi! My name is Brianna and my favorite Girl Scout cookie is the Peanut Butter Pattie. The Peanut Butter Pattie is a chocolate and peanut butter cookie. I like it because it tastes like a Reese's peanut butter cup. 

My favorite part of selling girl scout cookies is my troop collecting all the money we earned by selling Girl Scout cookies. We get to go on many fun and exciting adventures. For example, my troop used our money to go to the YMCA. We had hamburgers, hot dogs, and many other food items. Before cookie sales started, two of my friends and I delivered cookie informational packages to different TV stations, radio stations, and different businesses. When I sell boxes of cookies to other people, I love to see the smile on their faces when they walk away with their Girl Scout cookies. 

Girl Scout cookie sales teach us responsibility, management skills, and marketing. It also teaches us to work together as a team. I can't wait to sell cookies each year. I sold over 2,000 boxes of cookies last year and I hope to sell that many this year. I would like to go to 2 weeks of Girl Scout camp.

Aliyah-new.jpgSelling Girl Scout cookies can teach a person many things. I have learned a number of techniques from selling Girl Scout cookies. It helped in areas such as marketing, managing money, safety, and setting goals.    
   
When selling cookies, there has to be a way for people to know cookies are being sold. A few ways are telling friends and asking them to spread the word, sending out emails, and making signs and putting the signs on a vehicle . These marketing techniques should help boost your cookie sale rate. 

The next skill that I learned was how to manage money. The biggest part of managing money is learning how to make a budget and stick to it. With this budget, you can plan out what different types of things you want to do with the profit that is made. 

 While I was preparing for Girl Scouts I learned about how to be a safe sales person. I learned to always go door to door with a buddy and adult, never give out any personal information like your last name or home address, and never go into a stranger's house. 

The last, and most important, part of being a successful sales person is setting goals. Setting goals help me focus on things that are important and to not lose focus. Setting goals and reaching them also gives me a happy feeling and tells me I can do anything if I put my mind to it. In the end, learning these techniques can take me very far in the future.

Brittany-new.jpg

Hi! My name is Brittany and I am in Troop 8056 in Mobile, AL. I am going to tell you about the Girl Scout cookies that we are selling this year. 

My favorite Girl Scout cookie is the Shout Out because it is so yummy and delicious. I know that if you try them you will say they're yummy too. The first Girl Scout cookie was the Shortbread. I have tried the shortbread cookie and it is good. My troop used a recipe and made the first original cookie. My sister and I burned our cookies. The next one is the Thin Mint. I love them because if you freeze them they are yummy. The next cookie is the Caramel DeLite. I like them so much because they has so much coconut. My dad and I love to sit on the couch and eat them with a glass of milk. The next cookie is the Peanut Butter Patty. I don't like these very much but my sister Brianna LOVES them. She said they taste like a Reese's peanut butter cup. There is also a Peanut Butter Sandwich. The Thanks-A-Lot cookie is good and if you don't know how to say thank you, get a package of these and it says thank you in five different languages. I love the Lemonades also. They are good to eat with a glass of cold milk too. 

I like selling Girl Scout cookies because I get to meet new people. I like going to different places to sell cookies. My favorite part of selling Girl Scout cookies is the fun stuff my troop gets to do with the money and the cute prizes that I earn. I also get to go to camp with the money that I get from cookies that I sell. 

Last year, I sold over 2,000 boxes of cookies. This year, I am going to sell that many cookies because I want to go to 2 weeks of camp. The thing I like about Girl Scouts is earning patches and going places. I love Girl Scouts! It's fun!

Over the span of ten years being a Girl Scout, I have many special memories dedicated to selling and of course eating Girl Scout cookies! 

My all-time favorite cookies are the Peanut Butter Patties. My reason being, not only because of its soft chocolaty outside and its peanut butter covered crispy vanilla cookie on the inside, but also the experiences associated with this one cookie. The first campouts with my troop, our cookie selling booths at the flea market,  the fun nights associated to "trying the products" with Mrs. Libby's delicious pink lemonade to find our favorites during our meetings, and the telling of my experiences to younger girls now that I am a senior. 

Ever since the 1930's when the first cookies were sold, Girl Scouts across the world can now take pride, leadership, and dedication not just to win a cool beach towel or an MP3 player but to spread the happiness and joy of being a Girl Scout through a small box of scrumptious Peanut Butter Patties.

Susan.jpg

Hi! My name is Susan. I'm a Cadette Girl Scout in Troop 9204. Last summer, my troop went on a big trip to Atlanta, Georgia with our cookie money. Earlier last year, we voted on what we would do with the cookie money. Would we give our share of the money to the council and bring home cool prizes, or would we keep our share and go on a big trip? We voted to go on a trip.

At the beginning of summer vacation, my mom and I woke up early one morning. We got dressed and packed our bags. We were ready to go to Atlanta, Georgia. My troop met up in a church parking lot where we sorted out who would ride in what vehicle. After that, we drove to our destination.

Once we arrived, we all went to Subway and bought ourselves a sandwich. Then, we went to Stone Mountain. It was so cool! We climbed all the way to the top. The view was amazing! You could see downtown Atlanta from there! We all climbed back down the way we came up and ate dinner on the grass in front of the mountain. Once it got dark, we got to watch a cool laser show on the side of the mountain.

By then it was late, so after the show we drove to the hotel, checked in, and fell right asleep. The next day, we checked out and went to The World of Coca-Cola. We had a great time! We even got to try foreign sodas! Afterwards, we walked to the Georgia Aquarium. I loved the beluga whales!

Finally, we finished our trip off with a walk through Centennial Park, and ate lunch at the CNN center. Overall, I had a fun time on our trip. I hope my troop can sell a lot of cookies this year so we can go on another fun trip!

 

Tori.jpg

Hi! It's Tori! I'm going to talk about Girl Scout cookies.  What's your favorite? My favorite is the Thin Mint! I like Thin Mints because they're so minty and chocolaty.  

 

The cookies are easy to sell. They are only $3.50 a box! The money we earn from selling cookies goes to Girl Scouts so that we can do fun stuff.  Some of the fun things we did with cookie money was we went to Camp Dixie and Camp Scoutshire Woods.  

 

The reason I like selling cookies is the cookie booths.  My mom and dad dress up in a cookie costume and lots of people think they are Spongebob because the costume is yellow.  Sometimes, I have to wear the cookie at the booth. 

 

The real reason the cookies are easy to sell is because no one can resist a cute Girl Scout.  Cookie sales are important because they taste good and the money helps all Girl Scouts.

Okay, baby stoats like this one can't vote, but YOU can!

It's time to choose recognitions for the 2012 Cookie Event and they will be chosen by Girl Scouts -- as in you!

All you need to do is click on Little Miss Stoat here and you will go to the voting web site where you can help choose items for each level of Cookie sales.  The mascot this year is Penguins (but penguin doesn't rhyme with vote, so a baby stoat is the best we could do...).
