Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines Named Top Sellers for 2021 Girl Scout Cookie Program

Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines is pleased to announce that Allison B. of Onslow County is the council’s top seller for the 2021 Girl Scout Cookie Program. Allison sold 7,100 boxes of Girl Scout cookies in the annual cookie program that ended in March. Jayleena G. of Craven County placed second with 6,500 boxes sold and Haley E. of Cumberland County placed third with 5,834 boxes sold. The 2021 Cookie Program was held January 16 through March 21, 2021. 

Participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program is a long-held and cherished tradition for girls, with recognition as a top cookie seller a coveted honor. Being named a top seller goes beyond what’s in the box as it highlights a girl’s determination to set and achieve goals, develop business and financial literacy skills, and enhance their entrepreneurial spirit. This recognition also demonstrates a girl’s mastery of the five skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics as she runs her very own cookie business. This year posed new challenges due to COVID-19 precautions, and the Girl Scout top sellers persevered to innovate new ways of reaching customers. 

“This year we were focused on providing girls with opportunities to develop important skills and earn proceeds for their troops while staying safe during the pandemic,” said Kelly Griffin, product sales director, Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines. “The 2021 Girl Scout Cookie Program was like no other, and our top sellers conquered new challenges to reach their goals while providing moments of joy to fellow Girl Scouts and cookie customers alike.” 

The top sellers were recognized for their achievements with a celebration at Camp Mary Atkinson on May 22, 2021. In attendance were the top sellers and their families and Girl Scouts - North Carolina Coastal Pines staff members, including Chief Execuitve Officer Lisa Jones.

“I have learned through the Girl Scout Cookie Program how to run a business, promote my product, interact with people, and be successful,” said council top seller Allison B. “My troop plans on using our proceeds for a trip to Dollywood, badges and Girl Scout activities, and to help fund our Gold Award projects.”

Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines sold over 2 million boxes of cookies with approximately 6,800 Girl Scouts participating in the 2021 Girl Scout Cookie Program. More than 1,500 girls sold more than 400 boxes of cookies each. Additionally, 322 girls sold more than 1,000 boxes each. Council-wide the average number of boxes sold per girl was 300. Nationally the average number of boxes sold by Girl Scouts is approximately 165. This year, girls throughout the council collected donations to send 50,232 boxes of cookies to men and women proudly serving our country through Operation Cookie Drop.
