59 Minute Event – Troop Activity!

Troop Leaders

Host a 59 Minute Quick Start Event – GSOC hosted a “59 Minute Quick Start” event this week and 12 girls sold 95 gift cards in just 59 minutes! A troop with these results would have earned $285 in just under an hour of fun! The 59 Minute Quick Start is a great way to kick-start participation in the Fall Product Program. Girls talk on the phone with friends and family and earn patches & prizes.

How does it work? Each time a girl makes a sale, she runs up to ring a bell & receives a drawing prize for every 5 gift cards sold. GSOC can help you with your supplies and prizes.

Make your next troop meeting a high energy event where girls earn their 59 Minute Quick Start patch as well as credit towards fall product magazine recognitions and troop proceeds!  Bonus: troops who participate will also earn a $20 Magazine Gift Card. Click here to see how to host your own 59 Minute Quick Start!

Help Girls Set Goals – Ensure your troop is a girl-led experience by helping girls to set goals for what they want to do, where they want to go and who they want to help using our sample meeting plan on page 12-13 of the Troop Plan Book, Goal Setting Guide, and Smart Goals Worksheet.

Earn Troop Proceeds – Troops earn 14% for all nut/chocolate items and $3 for each magazine, e-book, and photo keepsake sold!  Girls can participate online even if their troop is not, but a Troop Product Coordinator is required for troops to earn proceeds. Don’t let your troop leave money behind. Get started today!

CLICK HERE to let the council know that you participated in a  59 Minute Quick Start Event and QSP will mail your troop a $20 Magazine Gift Card.

Each girl has the ability to choose from various background selections, accessories and features to reflect their unique self! Girls can edit the koala as often as she would like.

The more she does (sending emails, adding a photo of herself, etc.) the more fun accessories she unlocks for her koala.

Once completed the ENTIRE troop can upload their avatars to the troop page for a custom picture. Girls whom earn $200 in online sales get to turn their avatar creation into their very own CUSTOMIZED PATCH! NEW!! This year, Troop Adults can also create a patch online and if the troop earns $500 in online sales, up to 2 troop adults will earn their very own customized patch!
