Cookie Booths
Cookies on Social Media

Girl Scout Cookies may not be advertised or sold on online auction or sales websites including eBay, Craigslist, community buy/sell/trade sites and Facebook. A rule of thumb: only people who know the girl or her family personally should see her cookie sale information.

Girls 13 and older, with parental permission, may promote their Cookie Program on their personal social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, but all cookie sales are to be conducted in person other than ABC’s Smart Cookies Direct Ship website.

Parents can promote their daughter’s Cookie Program on their personal social sites but the Girl Scout must complete the sale. 

Girl Rewards
Milk & Cookies Cookie Share Donations

Badgerland is proud to partner with two Wisconsin dairy promotions boards to help our communities. Troops choosing to donate their "Cookie Share" cookies to select food pantries in Dane and Grant counties, will see their donations met with donations of milk. For every box donated, so will be a gallon of milk to that food pantry. This is an incredibly generous donation from the dairy community.

Troop Rewards

Troops selling at the following per-girl levels earn troop rewards. It's a Badgerland tradition!

The per-girl selling average is the number of cookies sold for the troop divided by the number of troop girls who sold.

204 Per-Girl Selling Average Reward

• Narwhal T-shirts for all girls that sold cookies!

252 Per-Girl  Selling Average Reward Choice* (choose one)
