A Michigan Girl Scout sold 17,328 boxes of cookies this year.

15-year old Jennifer Sharpe from Dearborn set up her shop on a street corner and sold cookies every day, with help from her mother and troop leader, Pam Sharpe.

Jennifer’s Troop 813 raised about $21,000 in cookie sales. And they plan to use the money for a 10-day trip to Europe.
