For Girls & Parents

Welcome to the Girl Scout Cookie Program, the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world. The Girl Scout Cookie Program helps your girl succeed today and prepare for future success. With every box she sells, she builds on 5 essential leadership skills she can use for a lifetime:

Goal Setting - as she sets cookie goals and makes a plan to reach them.
Decision Making - as she decides how her troop will spend their cookie money.
Money Management - as she makes a budget, takes orders and handles customers’ money.
People Skills - as she learns to talk and listen to all kinds of people while selling cookies.
Business Ethics - as she is honest and responsible every step of the way.
Ways to Sell Cookies

DIRECT COOKIE SALES

Girls have cookies in-hand to sell door-to-door to family, friends and neighbors. Girls sell cookies and collect money all in one transaction. Troops pre-order the cookies and distribute to each family. Families turn in money weekly to the Troop Cookie Coordinator.

  • February 9 - March 17
    Cookie Sale dates
  • Before March 1
    Opportunity to return unopened, clean cookie cases to your Troop if you don’t think you can sell them.
  • March 17
    Cookie sales end but if you have unsold cookies keep selling. It is your responsibility to turn in money for all the cookies in your possession.

ORDER TAKING COOKIE SALES

Girl Scouts use their Order Card to take pre-orders. When the cookies are available (March 8-10), Girl Scouts return to their customers to deliver the cookies and collect money at that time. Families then turn in the money to the troop. 

  • February 9 - March 17
    Cookie sales begin and girls start taking orders with order cards.
  • March 1
    Submit the order to your troop co-leaders.
  • March 8-10
    Families pick up your cookies from your troop and begin delivering to customers and collecting money.
  • March 17
    End of Cookie sale. All cookies should be delivered and money collected and submitted to the troop.

COOKIE BOOTHS

Booths allow Girl Scouts to sell directly to the general public in places such as grocery stores or sporting events. Booths are usually scheduled by a troop. At booth sales, girls work together to achieve troop and individual sales goals.

February 9 - March 17
Cookie Booth Sales are held throughout cookie season.

Digital Cookie Sales

Girls can superpower their sales by opening an online store. Girls email eCards (provided by our cookie baker) to family and friends, inviting them to purchase cookies.

There are two ways customers can purchase cookies online:

  1. Direct Ship eCards
    Customers will pay for their cookies + shipping. Cookies will be delivered to their doorstep by mail.
  2. Girl Delivery eCards
    Customers place a promise order for cookies. Girls deliver the cookies to the customer in person and collect payment at that time.
