Land of Lakes Girl Scout Council announces the girls had their biggest cookie sale ever.

During the 1999 cookie sale, 463,082 packages of cookies were sold, a 13 percent increase over last year.

More than 604 Girl Scout troops received a total of $138,924 to use for troop programming. Girls selling 100 boxes received a free t-shirt.

The top seller in the state was Priscilla Brackee, a fifth grader from Princeton, who sold 951 packages.

Among those selling 400 or more packages was Danae Thielen, Eden Valley. Selling more than 300 packages were Jennifer Monson, Hawick; Crystal Rudy, Paynesville; and Lacie Gerads, Richmond.

"Girls who sell 300 or more packages should be very proud of their efforts. Each girl worked very hard and knocked on a lot of doors to accomplish this goal," Leigh Ann Davis, program and training director for the council, said. Each of the top cookie sellers becomes a member of the council's Cookie Club for selling 300 or more packages of Girl Scout cookies. Junior cadette and senior Girl Scouts will receive a free weekend at Shingobee Timbers Girl Scout Camp near Hackensack. The Brownie top sellers will have a free day and overnight program at the Girl Scout office in Waite Park.
