Selling Popcorn is not just about raising Money
Come join the fun of selling popcorn this year!!! Selling popcorn is the Scouting Program and the money raised is a by-product and a means to support the program. The life lessons learned with selling popcorn vary from counting money, to public speaking to salesmanship. Selling popcorn is a vital part of the council's annual budget and helps lower the cost of Scouting. So what are you waiting for? Click the link above and sign-up to sell.

Unit Leader Guide
This is a great way to motivate your youth to sell more popcorn and earn more money for program. Here is a great example of what I mean. If a Cub Scout Pack opts out of prizes, and they typically sell $5000. Their 3% additional Commission works out to be about $150. If they motivate 5 boys using the Prizes to sell $350 the Commission is over $500. In some cases youth will be motivated to go above and beyond the sale. Check out our awesome prizes.

Online sales is out fastest growing sales class when it comes to moving popcorn. It's super easy to do. Below are three easy steps to follow and here is a link to a tutorial.
- Have each youth attend your next meeting with an email address from Aunts, Uncles, Grandmas, Grandpas, Neighbors, Church Members, Babysitters, Teachers, Family Friends and Parents' Friends.
- Most of our youth today are familiar with creating an online profile. Helping them to create an online profile and inviting the people above to support their child in their Scouting Program is a pretty easy sale.
- The money shows up at the first of every quarter. There is no money to collect, product to pick-up or anything to worry about as the money grows in your unit account.
