ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WTVY) – The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the nation’s largest girl-run business and the leading financial education program for girls. Designed for girls in grades K-12, it’s a key part of the Girl Scout leadership experience.
Lydia Plant, a fifth-grade Enterprise student, was named the top cookie seller in southern Alabama for selling 11,300 boxes. Break our municipal record again for the number of boxes sold during a cookie season.
Lydia has pioneered the innovative sale of cookies with its cookie vending machine.
She says, “Due to COVID-19, we needed a safe way to sell cookies that was also eye-catching and portable, so we created our cookie vending machine.”
Lydia’s creative and contactless cookie delivery option has definitely been a hit with her customers.
Her advice to other Girl Scouts when selling cookies is to “do your best and work hard, be friendly with 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, have fun!
When she’s not selling cookies, Lydia enjoys making new friends and doing community service as a Girl Scout. She also won the Bronze Award, one of the three highest honors in Girl Scouting.
Lydia’s troupe plans to make new memories with her cookie earnings by participating in community service, embarking on new adventures, and staying at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab.
