Girl Scout Cookies are an icon of American culture. For nearly 100 years, Girl Scouts, with the enthusiastic support of their families, have helped ensure the success of the annual sale. Your purchase means you get tasty cookies—and a girl learns a lifetime of skills, such as goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics, the Girl Scouts says.
The money earned from cookie activities helps the troop partake in service projects, go on field trips, purchase patches, attend summer camp, etc.
Girl Scouts: Don't forget to upload your booth sales into the Patch Calendar of Events. Let everyone in town know where you will be selling cookies.
