GIRL SCOUTING BUILDS GIRLS OF COURAGE, CONFIDENCE, AND CHARACTER, WHO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE.

Bling Your Booth Winner

The Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital is happy to announce that Troop 5251 received the most likes on Facebook for our Bling Your Booth contest, and each member of the troop will receive a Girl Scout Build-a-Bear.

What makes this even more special is that this teen troop is comprised of nine girls, eight with special needs and one sibling. For some of the girls, this was their first cookie booth sale, as many are new to Girl Scouting. The girls were all so excited about selling cookies; at their meeting they blinged-out green baseball caps with trefoils and sparkles, and made jewelry with Girl Scout beads. The girls made up cheers and role-played interactions with customers.  Many also practiced calculating cookie prices and making change. We say Girl Scouts is the best leadership program for all girls—and this proves it!

All of the entries (we received nearly 300) were incredible. It was extremely difficult to choose the Top 12, but we used the criteria of creativity, marketing effectiveness and just outright cuteness! The Top 12 entries were featured on Facebook for our followers to vote.

We thank all of the Girl Scouts who participated in the Girl Scout Cookie Program and our first Bling Your Booth contest. We also thank all the leaders and parents for their support.
