Has your boy filled out there take order form? If so let me know and he will earn an RC truck and be entered into the weekly drawing for a Go Pro camera.

The top 100 sellers will get two tickets to the April 2016 NASCAR race and on-field recognition during the pre-race ceremonies next to the drivers. Your son will need to sell about to take order sheets worth of popcorn.

Talking points

Download a script to help your son. Asking will you help me is better than asking will you buy popcorn. It is much more difficult for someone to say no to helping a scout. Explain that popcorn is a donation to support scouting and not just an item to buy.

Download tips and tricks for selling popcorn. This is a great resource to answer any questions you may have. Make sure your time selling is used most efficiently with these tips and tricks.

View this video with your son for selling tips from Luke who sold over $26,000 worth of popcorn last year. Amazing!
