Eight-year-old excels in popcorn sales

Matthew Munro, a member of the 1st Comox Wolf Cub pack, sold enough popcorn to qualify for a scholarship.


Matthew Munro, a member of the 1st Comox Wolf Cub pack, set a personal goal of selling more than $2,500 worth of popcorn to achieve the top popcorn sales level and to qualify for an educational scholarship of six per cent of his total sales.

The eight-year-old achieved his goal by selling more than $2,600 worth of popcorn.

Matthew attained the top popcorn sales person designation for the Comox Valley by spending more than 35 hours canvassing and delivering popcorn door to door.

Sixty per cent of the total popcorn sales go directly back to the Scouts Canada youth in the Comox Valley. This money is used to develop and fund exciting programs, educational events, and outdoor camps for youth to complete during the year.

These events play an important role by promoting values such as honesty, integrity, responsibility, teamwork, leadership, and respect for the community and outdoors.

Matthew thanks all the people of the Comox Valley who supported Comox Valley Scouts and helping him achieve his goal of selling more than $2,500 worth of popcorn. Matthew’s parents are very proud of his dedication, determination, and his commitment to achieve his goals.
