Back by popular demand! We are excited to welcome back another cookie season filled with outstanding cookie booths, fabulous photo voting and great prizes!


What is Bling Your Booth?

Bling Your Booth is a contest where troops that are participating in a community or virtual booth sale can decorate their booth/table by adding signage, lights and all out bling or create an incredible pitch video to share on social media for a virtual booth sale. Anything to showcase your Girl Scout Cookie Business to customers.
 


What's the theme this year?

We want you to be as creative as possible! This year's theme is "Climb with Courage” so spotlighting this theme and/or our koala mascot is awesome. In addition, showcasing the 5 skills; decision making, goal setting, money management, people skills and business ethics is always great. Including the 5 skills lets customers know what our Cookie Program is all about.

These are just suggestions—pick a theme that motivates your troop! Maybe it’s sports, outdoors, travel or cooking. Remember, you are telling your troop’s story through the cookie booth whether with cool decorations and signage or via a video pitch.


How does the contest work?

All you have to do is decorate your booth, participate in a booth sale, photograph your troop at the booth and/or submit your pitch video and submit by the deadline. Submission period opens two days before submission deadline.

To submit your photo or video, simply watch for contest announcements on our Facebook page, click the links we share and follow the prompts to upload your photo and entry details.

Once voting opens, you can tell everyone to go vote for your booth! A troop can enter both our voting periods, however if placed in the Top 3 during the first voting period you can’t enter the second round. The Top 3 in Round 1 and Top 3 in Round 2 will enter the Grand Champion Round as our Super Six.
