Need ideas for what to do with all those empty Girl Scout cookie boxes? The Girl Scouts of Nassau County will host their own version of “Project Runway” on Feb. 4 as they gather to create designs from empty cookie boxes and model them on a runway at Westfield Sunrise Mall, 1 Sunrise Mall, Massapequa.

The girls will pick from a variety of boxes that used to house “Thin Mints” and “Samoas” and add a few embellishments before modeling an original piece of clothing and/or accessory. As the girls model for mall goers in a free fashion show at 11:15 a.m., a description of the outfit or accessory will be announced. For more information, visit
