Enterprise girl named Girl Scout Cookie Program top seller
ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WTVY) - The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the nation’s largest girl-led business and leading financial literacy program for girls. Designed for girls in grades K-12, it is a key element of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
Lydia Plant, a fifth grader from Enterprise, was named Top Cookie Seller in southern Alabama for selling 11,300 boxes. Breaking our council record again for the number of boxes sold during one cookie season.
Lydia paved the way for innovative cookie selling through her cookie vending machine.
She says, “because of COVID-19, we needed a safe way to sell cookies that was also eye-catching and transportable, so we created our cookie vending machine.”
Lydia’s creative and contactless cookie delivery option was definitely a hit among her customers.
Her advice to other Girl Scouts when selling cookies is to “try their best and work hard, be friendly to every customer, and focus on learning the five skills [Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills, and Business Ethics]. Don’t worry about how many boxes you sell, just have fun!”
When she is not selling cookies, Lydia enjoys making new friends and doing community service as a Girl Scout. She has also earned the Bronze Award, one of the three highest awards of Girl Scouting.
Lydia’s troop plans on making new memories with their cookie earnings by participating in community service, embarking on new adventures, and staying at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab.
