59 Minute Challenge!

Join us for a FREE 59-minute Fall Product Kick-off Party that will jump-start your troop earnings and lead to fabulous individual rewards too!

Girls DO NOT have to register with their troop, but there must bring an adult chaperone. If girls are siblings, one adult for the multiple siblings is acceptable.

This is a telethon-type event. Bring with you a completed list of names and phone numbers, a fully charged cell phone, a charger (just in case), and a FUN and EXCITED ATTITUDE!

Girls who attend will earn a 59-minute quick start theme patch, door prizes throughout the event, and conclude their night with an ice cream sundae bar!

The night will start promptly at 5:30 pm, so please arrive by 5:15 pm to get through the check-in process.

This event will be held at both our Fort Wayne Service Center and our Michiana Service Center. Be sure to register for the one closest to you! 

Contact Sheet for the 59-Minute Kick-Off

If your troop would like to hold your own 59-Minute-Kick-off event:

  1. Email the date/time/location of your event to frontdesk@gsnim.org with the subject line "59-Minute-Kick-off" at least one day before your event.
  2. After the event, email a photo taken during the event, as well as the names of the girls who participated, and how many total magazine vouchers were sold (photos and names will not be published unless you include photo release permission).
  3. Girls who participate and sell at least one magazine voucher will earn the 59-minute patch, along with their regular awards.

Script and Contact Sheet for Troop Event

Here is a testimonial from one leader in GSNI-M that had success doing this on their own! 

"To decrease nervousness, we offered each girl a script to follow. When a girl made a sale, she would ring the cowbell we had on hand. Regardless of what others were doing, they were encouraged to stop and cheer for anyone who makes a sale. It truly added to the excitement of the day. 

I can’t remember the numbers for the event we held, but there were many sales made, and each girl had a great time. It was fun to see the salesgirl emerge despite them arriving all nervous and shy. It was a great way to put them at ease during their attempts to sale. 

Don’t like cold calling? No problem! We encouraged parents to call loved ones and let them know the date and time frame calls would be made. This allowed for more people to be available while the calls were being made."
