Cash Prizes, Weekly Drawings, and Free Patches, Oh My! Why Girl Scouts Should Participate In Early Bird Registration!

June 24, 2014

By Samantha Herring, Communications Intern

Girl Scouts Early Bird RegistrationWouldn’t you love not having to worry about registering your girls and parents in the fall while you are coordinating all of your start-up activities? Taking a few minutes now to complete registration of your girls and adults means one less thing to do during the flurry of back-to-school activities and the planning your troop will be doing for an action packed fall. If that’s not enough to motivate you, how about some cold, hard cash? For qualified troops who participate in Early Bird Registration, there are weekly drawings till the end of June and then a final, grand-prize drawing for $500 on June 30th. And oh, the things your troop could do with $500! Once you register, your troop is eligible for all remaining drawings. So if you haven’t completed your troop registrations yet, there is still time—and girl is it worth it!

But Wait, There’s More!

Even if you don’t win one of the drawings, your troop will automatically earn a $15 Early Bird gift card that you can use in the council shop or for council activities. You might use it for badges the girls earn or to help pay for a troop leader’s First Aid or Overnight Camping training.  It’s a win-win opportunity.

Girls Will Earn Discounts

Girls who are registered by June 30th will get a 15% discount on any new 2014 resident camp registration or any Council event through May 31, 2015.

Help Your Area Win Cash

Based on the number of girls and adults registered for the new Girl Scouting year, your Area can win cash too: $200 if 30% of registrations are completed by June 30, $400 if 50% are completed, and $500 if 65% are completed. Imagine the smile on your Area director’s face!

Get the official Early Bird Registration details on the Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines website.

Take a few minutes now and help yourself, your troop, and your area. Help Council serve you better by completing Early Bird Registration. Then sit back, sip a cool glass of iced tea, and congratulate yourself on a job well done!

Treats and Trophies for Top-Selling Girl Scouts

June 17, 2014

By Kelly Griffin, Product Sales Director

Drum roll please….. We have a new record!  During the 2014 Girl Scout Cookie Sale, our top three sellers each sold at least 4,000 boxes of cookies.  Wow, Girl Scouts! Way to go!

2014Top_SellersGirl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines celebrated these top-selling Girl Scouts on Saturday, May 31, at Imagination Station in Wilson, NC.  Girls and their families gathered for a catered luncheon with council CEO Lisa Jones, and then enjoyed an afternoon of fun exploring the museum.

Xena G. from Cary, NC, placed first selling 4,750 boxes of cookies! Xena joined the Girl Scouts in 2006 and was our number two top seller in 2013.  In just one year, she increased her sales from 3,041 to 4,750 boxes; a 56% increase overall! She also led the council in the 2013 Fall Product Sale as our top two seller. Xena is a member of Girl Scout Cadette Troop #15 and is planning a trip to Australia and New Zealand in 2015 with the travel-based Girl Troop #7000.

Our Second Place seller is Girl Scout Brownie Emerson F. from Winterville, NC, with 4,005 boxes sold! She was the top seller in Pitt County during the 2013 sale and had her eye on being the top seller in the council for 2014. Once you meet Emerson, there’s no doubting her ability to reach a goal.  As her mother says, “She has no fear when it comes to selling cookies.” She is a future entrepreneur!

Trailing second place by only five boxes, Antonina Q. from Fayetteville, NC, is top seller number three.  Nina had an amazing increase during this year’s sale jumping to 4,000 boxes from 1,226 boxes in 2013; a 226% increase. What an amazing leap in sales!  Nina is a member of Girl Scout Troop #888 and has been involved with Girl Scouts since 2008.

Also honored at the event was Taylor W., top seller for Operation Cookie Drop.  Taylor sold the most for the council’s military support program of any Girl Scout this year at 733 boxes; an almost 100% increase in her sales for this program, and a 50% increase over last year’s record for Operation Cookie Drop. Needless to say we were blown away and wanted to honor her! And to add to her success, she placed fourth overall during this 2014 sale, with 3,803 boxes sold.

Congratulations to all of this year’s top sellers.  Way to go, Girl Scouts!
