During the 2017 Girl Scout Cookie Program, Girl Scouts from Monmouth and Ocean counties sold almost 1.1 million boxes of Girl Scout Cookies. That works out to be an average of more than 125 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies sold per participating Girl Scout.
That’s a lot of Girl Scout Cookies, but the top Girl Scouts sold many more. Topping the list for the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore is Victoria Edelman, a sixth grade student from Toms River. She sold 3,044 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies. Coming in second, with only 10 fewer boxes, Christine Apostolico, also from Toms River. Grace Toscano, a sixth grade student from Brick, and Isabella Lupi, a fourth grade student from Holmdel, also sold 3,000 boxes of cookies or more.
In all, 19 Girl Scouts from Monmouth and Ocean counties sold more than 1,000 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies. The youngest is Lilyana Echevarria, a kindergarten student from New Egypt; she sold 1,305 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies.
Each of these top Girl Scout Cookie sellers were invited to the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore’s annual meeting earlier this month where they were presented a special certificate by the council’s CEO, Susan H. McClure.
During Girl Scout Cookie season, each amazing young G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ is not only selling delicious cookies but also building essential life skills, such as goal setting, people skills, and business ethics — which are essential for 21st century leadership. And the more cookies girls sell, the more earnings they have to power impactful community projects and personal enrichment experiences, such as camping and traveling. Locally, many Girl Scouts also set a goal to participate in the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore’s Jersey Shore Cares program, donating Girl Scout Cookies to local charitable organizations including the Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties and the military.
