This January, eight girls from Oregon and Southwest Washington joined Girl Scouts of the USA at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas to introduce the new Digital Cookie program. One of the participants, Girl Scout Ambassador Ashley L., shares her highlights below!
"We were invited to join the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada to help promote the new Digital Cookie program! Each of us made our own cookie website. Here is a video I made for mine: vimeo.com/115882855. It was a lot of fun making it. The digital cookie program is going to help girls in a lot of different ways. It will encourage them to become more tech savvy. They will learn how to post a video or picture onto a Web page as well as manage their sales and run their own cookie business. The Consumer Electronics Show was fantastic! I was very eager to see all the new gizmos and gadgets. My favorite was the tech bracelet that works like a phone. We stayed a week in Las Vegas. Our group was split in two so we could share the cookie booth with the Las Vegas Girl Scouts. We would promote the cookie program and answer questions about Girl Scouts. We were asked “How do you eat a digital cookie?” which was pretty funny because we would answer, “one BYTE at a time!” We were able to do a bit of sightseeing and even went to Cirque du Soleil – that was my favorite event! I want to thank Girl Scouts for providing me with this great opportunity to travel to new places, meet new friends and help promote this new era of the Digital Cookie!"
