Teen Earns Seat as Sophomore Class Treasurer with Help from SmileyCookie.com

Evan Schwartz, 15, may not be running for a seat in the senate, or campaigning for congress, but he knows getting voters attention during election season begins with putting a smile on constituents’ faces- 25 dozen to be exact.

Schwartz passed out 300 Smiley Cookies to his classmates during his campaign for sophomore class treasurer at Sherwood High School in Olney, MD, encouraging them to vote. His idea to order from SmileyCookie.com made a bold statement alongside his candy-giving running mates.

“Everyone loved the Smiley Cookies from SmileyCookie.com. I got a great response from my friends and teachers, and people are already talking about my campaign next year,” said Schwartz, who plans to order from SmileyCookie.com again when he runs for Sherwood High School’s Student Government Association as a junior.

Pittsburgh-based Eat’n Park, a family dining restaurant chain with locations in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia, made the Smiley Cookie famous over the last two decades and recently expanded their availability through SmileyCookie.com. The Schwartz family learned about the cookies thanks to visits from relatives in Pittsburgh, who brought Smiley Cookies to family events.

SmileyCookie.com conveniently delivers gourmet Smiley Cookies fast and fresh to all 50 states. A line of cookie gift baskets is available for virtually every occasion, including birthdays, get well, thank you, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day, with cookies taking the shape of jack-o-lanterns, Christmas trees, holiday stars, hearts, shamrocks, and bunnies.

Custom, or personalized, cookies can be ordered in a variety of colors. A dozen Smiley Cookies start out at $11.99, plus shipping. Orders more than $40 receive free shipping, and each gift order is backed by a 100 percent guarantee. All cookies are trans fat-free.

It’s difficult to say if the cookies were pivotal in his win, but this is the second year he has passed out Smiley Cookies and emerged victorious. Last year, Schwartz used Smiley Cookies to campaign for freshman class treasurer. They were so well liked that he ordered twice as many during this year’s run for office.

“Politicians running for government positions in Washington, DC, or Maryland, could take a cue from Evan,” said Robyn Schwartz, Evan’s mother. “When he discovered the same fresh-baked Smiley Cookies available at Eat’n Park restaurants could be ordered online, he thought it would be a great way to get voters’ attention at school.”
