Youth and Parent Popcorn Site
Welcome to our youth and parent area. Your unit has chosen the Trail's End popcorn sale as its major fundraising activity for the year. By selling Trail's End popcorn not only will your unit be able to raise all the money it needs so that you can have a GREAT, FUN year but you can also earn AWESOME prizes just by selling!! Spend some time looking through this site. You will find all kinds of great information and a lot of fun things to do.
How Can I Sell A LOT of Popcorn?
Being successful in the popcorn sale is all about setting realistic goals. We recommend that you set a goal for the number of items you sell. For example, set a goal for yourself to sell, say, 30 items of popcorn. Now break that goal down. Give yourself 6 weeks to sell. That is 5 items per week that you need to sell to reach your goal of 30. Put a chart up in your room and keep track each day of how close you are to reaching your weekly sales goal. 30 items too easy? Set a goal of 50! Sit down with your parents and talk about your goal. Remember, the more popcorn you sell the better the prize you earn and the better your year in Scouting will be!
Sell popcorn, earn money for college!
Scouts who sell $2,500 in a calendar year will receive 6% of their total sales invested in their own college scholarship account. This includes all of your fall sales as well as any year round online sales made by selling online. Once a Scout qualifies for the scholarship program 6% of his sales from all future sales will be credited to his scholarship fund! More information on the scholarship program is available online.
