Popcorn Return Policy
Five popcorn products cannot be returned to Crossroads of America Council in 2016. Those five products are noted below.
Once a unit orders these five 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 the following Tuesdays throughout the sale (September 27, October 4 or October 25) from 1:00-6:00 p.m., or on Tuesdays throughout the sale at the Muncie, or Terre Haute Scout Offices.
**October 25, 2016 is the deadline for returned popcorn. Popcorn returns will not be accepted after this date at any location and remain the property and financial responsibility of the unit.

Trail's End Popcorn Scholarship
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 email@example.com, 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.
NEW SCHOLARSHIP WEBSITE
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be set up for a scholarship account to get login information.

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