A Few Reasons Units Choose to Sell Popcorn
Check out the video below as well.
When participating in popcorn, Scouts gain self-confidence, people skills, money management, salesmanship, and business
ethics – things that help prepare them for life! These are great values and skills for youth to learn. All proceeds stay right here to help support local Scouts. That’s 73% that goes to Scouting. While a portion of that goes to directly support your Scout unit, the remaining portion gets reinvested into supporting your unit, and into local programs and supplies. So by selling, you not only help your unit, but you help Scouting as a whole.

2019 POPCORN FESTIVAL
The Dan Beard Council hosts a Popcorn Festival in the Fall which is free for all Scouts selling popcorn this year (1 free Scout and 1 free accompanying adult)! Siblings and family are also invited to attend with the purchase of additional tickets.
Scouts will earn their “I’m Trained” Patch by attending several popcorn booths where they will have fun and learn about popcorn. Then, all attendees will get to explore the Natural History Museum and the Children’s Museum throughout the evening. We’ll also be giving out fun prizes and giveaways throughout the evening.
