Go Packs Go! Pinewood Derby Car Prize Contest and Facebook Funding.

Posted on Oct 6 2020 - 6:07pm

To encourage Packs to keep recruiting in these challenging times, the Atlanta Area Council has two new initiatives to share:

1)      Free pinewood derby cars for the top recruiting Pack in each district!  The Pack that recruits the most new Cub Scouts between August 1 and November 30, 2020 will receive free pinewood derby cars for each active Cub Scout in the Pack.

2)      Free Facebook Ads! The Atlanta Area Council will reimburse every Pack up to $20 for Facebook advertising: boosting posts or geofencing events.  Key tips:

(a)    Run your ad for 5 to 7 days.  Any longer and you won’t get enough exposure each day.

(b)    If you have pictures of recent events where your scouts have masks on that would be great.

(c)    Video is always the best choice for ads. 

All ads must be run between October 2 and October 19.  Click here and complete the form to request your Pack’s reimbursement.

For more on using Facebook, see this Webinar on “Forging a Functional Facebook strategy” and for more on promoting your Pack, see Promote Your Pack - Media, Flyers & More.
