73c1ffa8-dce7-49ed-942f-4f8418334cb0.jpgA Digital Marketing Experience for Girls: Smart Cookies

When you sell Girl Scout Cookies, you’re doing more than just helping your customers stock up on delicious treats (and having lots of fun). You’re doing setting goals, working as a team and developing a host of skills along the way. Whether your troop is working to have a pizza party, implement a community project, or  have your first overnight trip, you know how many boxes you need to sell to reach your goal and make it happen.

Here’s a smart tip that makes tracking your efforts easier. Having a Smart Cookie profile lets you set your cookie goal, manage your cookie sale, track your progress, view recognitions and send Smart Cookies Direct Ship e-cards to customers all in one place. You can also manage your sale on-the-go with Smart Cookies Mobile. Check out the links below to learn about the digital Marketing Experience.

Scholarship Opportunities

Applications for The Prudential Spirit of the Community Awards due November 5

The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards honor young people in middle level and high school grades for outstanding volunteer service to their communities. It is the United States’ largest youth recognition program based exclusively on volunteer community service.

Local Honorees are selected at participating schools and organizations every November. From these winners, an independent judging organization names the top middle level and high school volunteer in each state and Washington, D.C. Results are announced in early February. Then, 10 National Honorees are chosen by a panel of prominent public figures, and announced at a special ceremony in Washington, D.C., in May.

Students chosen as Local Honorees receive a Certificate of Achievement from their schools or organizations. Those who qualify (50 hours of service for age 14 and younger, 100 hours for those older) also receive the President’s Volunteer Service Award. State Honorees receive an award of $1,000, an engraved silver medallion, and an all-expense-paid trip with a parent or guardian to Washington, D.C., for national recognition events. National Honorees receive an additional award of $5,000, an engraved gold medallion, a crystal trophy for their schools or organizations, and a $5,000 grant from The Prudential Foundation for a non-profit, charitable organization of their choice.
