Trails End to Retire Scholarship Program

Why are we retiring scholarship and enhancing
TE Rewards?
•    Only 1 out of 5 eligible Scouts (Scout with $2500+ in sales) actually enrolls in the scholarship and collects scholarship funds.
•    Scouts who claim their scholarship funds wait an average of 10 years.
•    With TE Rewards, all Scouts can claim their earned gift cards and receive them immediately. 
What do I need to know regarding these changes?
•    View the higher values and new levels on our TE Rewards chart.
•    No scholarship forms or sales will be accepted after March 31, 2020.
•    Trail’s End will continue to pay out existing scholarship funds to eligible recipients under the current scholarship process.
•    Scouts who sold $2,500 or more in 2019 and active Scouts enrolled in the scholarship program will receive an email notifying them of Rewards and scholarship changes on Wednesday, February 12.
•    Active unit leaders will receive an email regarding Rewards and scholarship changes on Wednesday, February 12.
Where should unit leaders and Scouts go for answers to
TE Rewards or scholarship questions?
•    Unit leaders can join our Trail's End Popcorn Community Facebook Group to discuss these changes with Trail's End and other unit leaders.
•    Scout parents can join our Trail's End Scout Parents Facebook Group to discuss changes with Trail's End and other Scout parents.
•    Our support page will be updated to include scholarship FAQs on Wednesday, February 12.
•    Additional questions can be sent to our scholarship support team at scholarship@trails-end.com.
We appreciate your partnership and look forward to providing your Scouts and unit leaders with the support to help them fund their future Scouting adventures.




Thank you to our friends at Golden Harvest who have donated their warehouse for Popcorn!

Warehouse Location:

Golden Harvest, 3310 Commerce Dr, Augusta, GA 30909


The Popcorn Sale is the official sponsored fundraiser of the Georgia-Carolina council. Popcorn isn't just about raising money. It's also about teaching Scouts to earn their own way, interacting with grown-ups, and being more confident. Scouts who sell popcorn can also earn prizes and a movie ticket to watch Sonic the Hedgehog!

A popcorn sale is pretty simple but there are some details that will make the sale a lot smoother for you and your unit. Be sure to share important dates with families in your unit. Any resource or form you can't find on the website, you can email your District Kernel or your District Executive for assistance.
