    • Must haves at your booth include your troop’s goal, cookie pricing, Smiles4Military promotion and a Girl Scout smile
  3. Upload your booth photo here by 10 a.m. each Monday

Winning Troops will be chosen on their creativity, execution of a theme (any theme of their choice), presentation and the presence of the “must-have” items noted in the entry requirements.
