Popcorn Return Policy

Four popcorn products cannot be returned to Crossroads of America Council. Those four products are noted below.
Once a unit orders these four products, they must sell them, buy them, or transfer them to another unit.

Returned products will be credited to unit accounts if they are in excellent condition, returned in their original cardboard case/box, and do not contain writing of any kind.  Unblemished products, even the outside cardboard boxes, are required in order to sell leftover popcorn to other councils at the end of the sale.

Popcorn may be returned for unit credit to Camp Belzer on specific Tuesdays throughout the sale or at the Muncie, or Terre Haute Scout Offices. Please note deadlines for returning unused popcorn.

Trail's End Popcorn Scholarship

Scholarship Information 

Scouts who sell at least $2,500 during a fall popcorn sale receive 6% of their sales invested in their own college scholarship account!

Once Scouts are enrolled, 6% of their sales each year will be added to their account and interest will accrue on their accumulated credits.

Scouts only have to hit the $2,500 minimum sales level one time!

PARENTS (not Unit Kernels) of Scouts must complete and submit the scholarship form and other supporting materials to enroll their child, and annually thereafter to report on additional sales. 

Send the forms to the council at popcorn@crossroadsbsa.org, the council verifies and approves sales, and the council forwards to Trail’s End.

FUN FACT: Each year, the top 5 Scouts in each region get their 6% matched 1:1 (up to $1,000) in their scholarship account.

In the past, we would mail out scholarship statements to Scout parents. Now, parents can go online and see their statements.

Parents: Send an email to scholarship@trails-end.com and ask to be set up for a scholarship account to get login information.

Scholarship payout can be used for any form of post-secondary education (i.e. 4 yr college University, 2 yr Community College, trade school, etc.).

Payouts go directly to the institution, not to the boy. See terms & conditions for more details.
