For Schnorf, sweet success is a ticket to the Bulls in Chicago

David Schnorf of Ellicott City sold 1,426 candy bars -- at $1 apiece -- to win the Howard County Youth Program's fund-raising contest and a trip to Chicago to see the Bulls.

After receiving a flyer during practice in early November, David, 7, escorted by his mother, Joan, and father Cole, went to several area food markets and video stores where he sold the candy bars one at a time.

David developed his own formula for success. He'd first ask the costumer if he or she wanted to buy a candy bar. If the person said no, he would say that the sale of the bar would raise money for HCYP basketball and finally that he could win a trip to Chicago if he sold the most.

The strategy worked, and now David is bound for the Windy City. His prize includes two airline tickets, hotel accommodations, limousine service, Bulls tickets and dinner for two.
