Popcorn and Scouts

Popcorn 2020

The popcorn sale is a way for a Scout to support their way through various activities during the year. Money raised during the annual sale helps support the local units and the Scouting program in the Bay Area Council, including council operations. There are three methods to sell popcorn: Show & Sell, Take Order Sales, and Online Sales.

Why Should You Sell?

• Pay for a year of Scouting programs
• Scouts learn valuable lessons such as earning your own way, salesmanship and teamwork

• Scouts can earn incentives such as prizes and scholarships
• 
The popcorn sale helps support local council operations

 

Ways To Sell

1. Show & Sell

Scouts have popcorn in hand to show and sell to customers. Dens, packs or troops can request permission to sell in front of a retail store or chartered organization. Show-n-Sell orders are due by TBD.

2. Take Order Sales 

Take order sales are the most traditional way to sell popcorn. Scouts go door-to-door with the take order form received from your leader after the unit kick off. Customers choose the product(s) he or she wishes to buy and writes the order on the order form. Scouts should collect the money when the popcorn is ordered (checks should be made out to the unit). Popcorn will be picked up by units on TBD. Download the Trails-End App 

3. Online Popcorn Sales 

Selling online is the best way to sell to friends and family who live far away. Online sales count toward Scout rewards including the scholarship program. Participants can send emails asking people to purchase products online. The email includes a link allowing them to begin shopping right away. Customers can pay with a credit card, and the products are shipped directly to the customer. The advantages of online sales are that the Scout doesn't have to collect money or deliver products. Shipping is complimentary.

 

Commission

The basic popcorn commission is 33%. If your unit chooses to take advantage of the prize program, your unit receives 30% commission.

 

Distribution 

SHOW & SELL (ALL DISTRICTS), TBD

TAKE ORDER (ALL DISTRICTS), TBD

Scholarships

This is in addition to adding several new levels and adding value at several levels, including the 2% increase to Rewards levels at $2,500 and above.

Our team will be revising the scholarship program Terms and Conditions in the coming weeks,
