NYPENN Media Roundup – February 2013

By: Kim Dunne, Media Manager

GSNYPENNservicemarkThe media in February has been great to us! With the help of various staff, volunteers, and girls, we did 19 interviews to promote the cookie program around National Girl Scout Cookie Day.

Here is an overview of just some of the cookie media in February:

In Binghamton, both TV stations, News Channel 34 and WBNG had preview stories for National Girl Scout Cookie Day. There was also a national story that was run on several of our local TV stations about National Girl Scout Cookie Day. Two Girl Media Team members were on WSYR’s Bridge Street on National Girl Scout Cookie Day to promote the cookie program. WWNY in Watertown also ran a story about cookie sales being underway. The Syracuse New Times ran an article around National Girl Scout Cookie Day that was entitled Thin Mint Nation. Several media outlets also reported about how the Oswego County Health Department used Girl Scout cookies as a drill to prepare in case there ever would be an emergency – here is the article from the Valley News. Several media outlets reported about the Girl Scout Brownie from Watertown donating cookies to troops for the second year in a row – here is the report from Your News Now. Girl Scouts from the Verona area are donating cookies to a local food pantry – the Oneida Daily Dispatch reports. The Daily Review in Towanda, PA has an article about the cookie depot that is in Troy, PA.

Although cookies was the main topic in February there were also a couple other noteworthy media hits. The Post-Standard reports about a Baldwinsville Girl Scout that is working on her Girl Scout Gold Award project. The Morning Times in PA did a feature on a World Thinking Day event that was held.
