GSU News Crew

Calling All Seniors and Ambassadors!

We want YOU to join our Girl Scouts of Utah News Crew as a Cookie Correspondent!

We are looking for a group of Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts to join our GSU News Crew for the fast-approaching 2021 Cookie Season!

As a Cookie Correspondent, you can participate in television, radio, and print interviews, as well as work with our marketing team on special reports and stories about our unique cookie season challenges, solutions, and successes!

As a GSU News Crew Cookie Correspondent, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Participate in television, radio, and newspaper interviews
  • Write articles and submit photos for the GSU website, newsletters, and social media accounts
  • Host interviews at cookie booths and other cookie-related events
  • Help write stories about unique ways girls and troops are navigating the challenging cookie season this year

You will be a great Cookie Correspondent if you:

  • Are a currently registered Girl Scout enrolled in grades 9-12 
  • Have sold Girl Scout Cookies in the past, and will be participating in the program in 2021
  • Are available for interviews or events in January, February, and March 2021
  • Have an interest in marketing, communications, or journalism, and have an interest in one or more of the following:
    • On-air interviews
    • Writing stories about Girl Scouts and our Cookie Program
    • Photography
    • Social media posts and photos
    • Coaching on-air Cookie Correspondents as a producer/director (This involves virtually reviewing talking points and rehearsing interviews before they go on-air)
  • Have a complete Girl Scout uniform (including a vest or sash, white blouse, and khaki pants)
  • Can attend one virtual News Crew training session provided by GSU (dates TBA), or watch the recording afterward
  • Have parent/guardian permission to participate and a signed media release
  • Are available for on-air opportunities, like television and radio station interviews
    • The News Crew does not require participation in on-air events; these opportunities are filled by girls who can accommodate the requests, both with scheduling and parental approval
    • Television, radio, and newspaper interviews are often requested at the last-minute, and we will fill the spots on a first-replied basis, ensuring that as many girls get opportunities as possible
