Frisco Girl Scout is top cookie seller

Daily News staff report

The results from another successful Girl Scout cookie activity are in and a Girl Scout from Frisco, Elizabeth Champion, is Mile Hi Council’s top seller.

Champion sold 2,605 boxes by asking everyone she knows in her community.

“My goal this year was just to get to 2,000 boxes,” said Elizabeth. “I exceeded my goal by asking people to buy cookies to donate to my hometown heroes – soldiers in Iraq. I sold more than 300 boxes to donate to soldiers.”

Mile Hi Council Girl Scout troops earned $1.25 million dollars from the cookie activity to support camping, trips and community service projects.

In addition to earning money for their troops, Mile Hi Council Girl Scouts donated a record 51,825 boxes of cookies to their Hometown Heroes this year. Troops selected heroes from their community, such as military personnel, firefighters, police officers and non-profit organizations. Girls asked their customers to buy an extra box of cookies as a way of saying “thank you” to their hero.
