Scouts who sell at least $2,500 (online, face-to-face, or combination) in any calendar year will have 6% of their Qualified Product Sales count towards their own Trail's End Scholarship*. Once enrolled, 6% of their sales each year will go towards the scholarship*. Reporting of sales is not automatic, and forms must be submitted to Trail's End each year following the guidelines below. Scouts only have to hit the $2,500 minimum one time, and don't forget online sales count!!
BONUS: Every year, the Top 5 Scouts in each region will receive an additional 6% of their Qualified Product Sales credited towards their scholarship, up to the $1,000 annual maximum.*
Proceeds from the Trail's End Scholarship are taxable. If a Scout earns more than $600**, Trail's End will send a 1099 to the Scout for the year in which the payout was made. Consult with your tax preparer to learn how this may affect you. Even with a tax liability, the net proceeds from the program provide a positive benefit to participating Scouts.
*A calendar year is January 1 to December 31.
**Or as IRS regulations may specify.
Now the fun part begins.
