This year’s tip top cookie seller is Neveah Smith, a Junior from Troop 2276 in Fort Atkinson. Neveah sold 4301 boxes of cookies in just five weeks! She has been a Top Cookie Seller for several years and, along the way, says she's learned plenty of techniques. One key to her cookie success is to "ask every single person who walks by" to purchase cookies. During this year’s Girl Scout sale, held over a five-week stretch in February and March, Neveah worked 31 cookie booths, some with her troop and some on her own. She's found it most effective to hold her booth sales outside. Another thing she's learned? "Layering clothes! I did lots of outdoor booths because that's where my best sales are and I've learned to put on a lot of layers and to smile at everyone. It works!" Neveah says. A highlight of this year's sale was meeting an Elvis impersonator who happened by her stand. "He was nice and he bought cookies!" Thanks to Neveah’s cookie business, she earned trips to Disney World, San Diego and Chicago!
In total, Badgerland Girl Scouts sold more than 1.5 million boxes of cookies in February and March. To learn more about this year’s top cookie sellers and Badgerland’s cookie program, click here.
