Cookie Sale Program

February 13—March 15, 2015


Ready for a GREAT Cookie Season?

Through Girl Scouting, girls become leaders in their daily lives and prepare for their bright futures! Girl Scout Product Activities, such as the Girl Scout Cookie Program provide important ingredients for leadership by helping girls develop five key skills: Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills and Business Ethics. Girls also are able to earn money towards fun and exciting girl-planned program activities, as well as to contribute to their council’s ability to provide Girl Scouting in the community.
