Scout Sells $25,000 Worth Of Popcorn; Gets Special Recognition


We don’t know what Trevor Rau’s secret is when it comes to selling popcorn, but we’re certainly impressed by his results.

Over the last 12 years, the South Dakota Eagle Scout has sold about $25,000 worth of popcorn. The funds have helped pay for his Boy Scout outings, of which there have been many: Trevor has three different 50-miler awards — canoeing, biking and hiking.

    I sold $36,400 in 9 years of my sales. It takes a lot of work to do what he had done!

    Great job, Trevor. It’s great to see people from my old district, my council getting awarded for their hard work!!

  3. Why, comatose, why??? says:

    Makes it to eagle, sells a lot of popcorn. He must be a very, very, very dedicated person. Awesome!!!

    It’s easy enough to sell if the scout has initiative. Of course, a motive helps. My sons wanted to attend Jambo at Bechtel. I told them that they would have to pay their way, which they did by each selling almost $7500. The years before and after they averaged about $5000 each. Don’t know their year to date totals. Don’t think they care.
