Girl Scout Cadette, Jenna D., was crowned as GSCM’s 2015 Cookie Entrepreneur for her outstanding cookie sales – 5,058 boxes – at the 500+ Club celebration on Saturday, February 28. Jenna’s cookie sales have set a new high in GSCM cookie sales history! We asked Jenna about her phenomenal cookie sale success, here is some of what she had to say:
How did you decide on your cookie sale goal?
I started with a small goal and each time I reached it, I set a higher goal and once I got close I decided I wanted to double what I sold last year.
How did you meet your goal?
Going door to door and doing lots of cookie booths.
What did you learn from selling Girl Scout Cookies?
I learned and used the five skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
Why do you like selling Girl Scout Cookies?
It helps discount trips for our troop, I learned a lot from it, and it is a lot of fun!
What school activities are you involved with?
I am involved in soccer, volleyball, basketball, instrumental, and selling chocolate bars for our school.
*In addition, even with all of her activities, Jenna is consistently on her school’s Honor Roll.
Other than your troop activities, are you involved in any other Girl Scout groups?
Yes, I am in Caitlin’s Outdoor Adventurers group, a GSCM Travel Pathway Group, the Girl Scout Lego group, and Girl Scout Chorus.
