Chillicothe, a community just shy of 9,000 residents in north central Missouri is home to some pretty amazing things:
2015 Bling Your Booth Champions – Junior Troop 484
Bling Your Booth was back by popular demand this year! Troops from across our 47-county service area were invited to participate in community booth sales and decorate their booth / table by adding signage, lights and all out bling. Troops could add anything to showcase their Girl Scout Cookie Business to customers while following booth etiquette and protocol.
Troop 484 is really into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) so it was no surprise that their booth involved their own interpretation of the periodic table. The periodic table of Girl Scout Cookies, that is.
Their blinged out booth earned them a weekly champion spot that advanced them to the grand champion round. During that week of voting, they received more than 900 votes. Combined with the judge’s scores from Hendrick Lexus, Troop 484 was crowned Grand Champions!
These Girl Scouts and troop leaders did a great job of working their cookie business and showcasing their booth at locations around the community. When it came time to rally for votes, they already had a solid base of supporters in their community! When asked about their strategy for racking up votes, one troop member said “We’re just naturally awesome!”
Obviously we knew that!
On Sunday, we celebrated the awesomeness of Troop 484 at their local bowling alley, The Fast Lane! Girl Scouts and troop leaders worked the “green carpet” and enjoyed some troop time bowling! Following, they had their own private bling dinner party complete with a candy/goodie buffet and special visit from CEO, Joy Wheeler!
You answered the BLING call,
Your creative Girl Scout Cookie Booth inspired us all,
Now is the time to stand Girl Scout proud and tall!
Congrats to all of our Final 4: Troop 1643 from Lee’s Summit, Mo. (2nd place); Troop 8340 from St. Joseph, Mo. (3rd place) and Troop 1630 from Blue Springs, Mo. (4th place overall).
