Dear Troop Leaders & Cookie Managers,
Two more weekends left of our Cookie Program! Last chance for our customers to pick up a box of their favorite kind, troops to earn proceeds and girls to earn recognitions!! Here are a few items to be ready for / take advantage of:
Bling Your Booth Contest
Decorate your booth using the theme, "Girl Scouts Change the World" and showcase the 5 skills; goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business.ethics.
Enter to win! Submit your photo for one or all four weeks: Photos due March 20, 27 and 31 - photo should include Girl Scouts in the shot, send to firstname.lastname@example.org with your troop number and city/state. We will upload to Facebook for weekly voting.
Cool prizes Highest votes on Facebook will determine our 1st - 3rd places each week. Weekly 1st Place: Bling your booth patch for each girl and $150 in Cookie Dough to split among girls. Weekly 2nd Place: Bling your booth patch for each girl and $75 in Cookie Dough to split among girls. Weekly 3rd Place: Bling your booth patch for each girl. The four 1st Place winners will then be judged and a Grand Prize will be given: $250 for the troop and a pizza party!
Be eligible All troops are eligible whether council scheduled or not. Just make sure that your booth sale has been entered in SNAP for the Cookie Finder to be eligible for the contest. Get directions on entering into SNAP now.
Customer Appreciation = Troop Incentive
Troops with booth sales from March 17-23 and March 24-30, should download a special sign and affix to a wood stick and have ready at their booth sale - this cookie sign will provide a place to enter their troop number, decorate and include #gsksmobuy5boxes.
If a customer purchases at least 5 boxes of cookies, you can ask them to pose for a photo with the sign - you or the customer need to follow us on Twitter @gsksmo and upload the photo using the #gsksmobuy5boxes.
If you upload for the customer, be sure to capture name and contact phone and send to email@example.com.
Your troop and the customer will be eligible for a prize. One awarded each week. The customer who is drawn will receive a gift basket and a case of his or her favorite cookies. The troop that is drawn will receive $100 in Cookie Dough to split among the girls.
To be eligible, you must have your booth uploaded to the Cookie Finder. Input your booth into SNAP for the upload.
Just because you deplete your troop's supply of cookies doesn't mean you have to stop selling. You just have to do a little planning.
Put in your Planned Order by Sunday at 11:59 pm.
If you missed the deadline or need more after the deadline, first check in with your service unit cupboard if no cookies are available, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can't guarantee but will do everything we can to get what you may need.
Bring back cookies - when you pick up additional cases of cookies from March 17-29, you can bring 30% back. Take 10 cases and bring 3 cases back (these cases can be mixed as long as they equal 12 packages in a case).
Please note: you must bring back cookies by March 31 and to only the KC Office, St. Joseph Office and Topeka Office.
Enjoy the last several days of this year's Cookie Program! Can't wait to see all your great photos as we encourage customers to get their last few boxes of the season!
