November 18, 2022

Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois (GSofSI) has wrapped up the annual fall Nut, Candy, and Magazine Program for 2022. Girls in Southern Illinois crushed it this fall, selling over $500,000 in tasty treats and magazines. Let’s give a shout out to the following girls for being All-Star Entrepreneurs for their respective areas:

• Natalie Melton from the Centralia Service Unit sold $823 in product

• Riley Smith from the East Marion County Service Unit sold $699 in product

• Catelyn Allen from the Jefferson County Service Unit sold $688 in product

“Wow! The girls knocked it out of the park during the Nut, Candy, and Magazine Program this fall,” said Katie Grayling, Director of Product Programs. “They let their entrepreneurial skills shine, and we can’t wait to hear how they use these funds for their Girl Scout adventures.”

Girl Scout Product Programs help girls gain five valuable life skills – goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics – that will benefit them throughout their lives. And, proceeds from these programs stay local to provide numerous opportunities for girls to explore their interests, become tomorrow’s leaders, and change the world.
