Oklahoma Girl Scout Breaks Cookie Sale Record

When it comes to selling Girl Scout cookies, Oklahoma 6th grader Katie Francis seems to have sold boxes to everyone and their mother.

The 12-year-old broke the national record on Sunday by selling 18,107 boxes of those famous Samoas, Thin Mints and Tagalongs—beating the previous record of 18,000, according to Slate.

But Francis is no stranger to breaking records. She broke the state record two years in a row, according to NewsOK, before making the national record her next obstacle to beat.

Her secret?

"There are three ingredients to the cookie sale," Francis tells Oklahoma City news station KOCO. "It takes lots of time, commitment and asking everybody I see."
