Bling Your Booth for a Chance to Win Big!

Is your Girl Scout troop comprised of some of the most creative cookie bosses around? Let their creative juices flow and enter this year’s Bling Your Booth contest for a chance to win big! This year, 25 Girl Scout troops will win $250 from Girl Scouts of the USA if their blinged-out booth receives the most votes!

It’s easy to participate! Between now and April 23, have a Girl Scout adult from your troop upload a photo of your booth here. Between April 24 and April 30, share your photo and invite your friends and family to vote for your booth. The 25 troops with the most votes on April 30 will receive a cash prize!

Here are some ideas to get you started on creating a winning booth:

Pick a theme. Tropical paradise, superheroes, carnival— it’s up to you! Choose a fun, eye-catching theme to draw customers in.
Troop 516 went all out with a Gift of Caring theme for their booth.
Be bright. Stick to just one bright color or use the whole rainbow to make your booth pop. Posters, balloons, banners and a tablecloth will help draw attention to your cookie booth.
Troop 385 used bright colors and polka dots
to make their booth stand out.
Show off. Customers want to see how your sales are going. Add a cookie goal poster to your booth and encourage customers to buy an extra box to help you reach your goal!
Troop 5357 set a goal to sell 1,000 boxes of cookies to donate
to the military and used posters to let their customers know.
Dress up. Your decorations don’t have to stop at the booth! Wear cookie costumes or dress up to match the theme of your booth. Just be sure that customers can still see your Girl Scout identification!
Troop 136 made their own cookie costumes to wear over their
Girl Scout Daisy uniforms.
