Our Council is trying something new this year to encourage kids to sell....
They are offering the Salesman Merit Badge to kids who 1) go to a 2 hour
presentation which covers the basic part of the merit badge requirements, 2)
work up a sales plan for their unit and 3) sell at least $130 of popcorn.
(There may be some other requirements, but they follow what's in the mb
book). We don't know yet if this will encourage kids to try harder, but
it's a new approach. (They still have the regular "prizes" for sales).
