Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland's top cookie sellers – 610 Girl Scouts from across the state who each sold more than 500 packages of cookies – gathered this weekend in Wichita to celebrate during special events at Tanganyika Wildlife Park and Exploration Place!
The top cookie seller of 2015 was Abby Uncapher, a Brownie Girl Scout from Independence who sold 1,800 packages of Girl Scout Cookies. Girl Scouts across 80 Kansas counties sold 1,462,645 packages of cookies between Jan. 31 and March 8. Statewide, more than 16,100 packages of cookies were purchased through the council’s Cookie Share Program, which benefits military members and local charities. Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland has distributed more than 94,500 packages of cookies through this program since its inception in 2010, with more than half going to military members and their families.
Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, Girl Scouts learn five essential skills – goal-setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics – that last a lifetime. They’re also working to help people in need and taking steps to care for our planet, as many Girl Scouts invest their own cookie proceeds right back into communities across our great state. All of the cookie sale proceeds stay in Kansas to support Girl Scouting and help girls reach their goals, whether it’s attending Girl Scout camp, completing a service project in their community, or even traveling the world!
Drumroll, please ...

We'd also like to announce who won the "Guess How Many Cookies in the Jar" contest at the 500+ party. There were 231 cookies in the jar! We had four girls who guessed just one away from the correct number: K’lynn Ellis, of Troop 60104; Annabelle Merten, of Troop 40389; Serena-Alyssa Kates, of Troop 40558; and Sabrina Bishop, of Troop 70323. We do have a prize for all of you! Please contact your regional Girl Scout office to pick up your prize.
