2024 Cookie Program

Life just got a little sweeter! It's Cookie Time!

Wouldn’t it be great if all girls could have an opportunity to experience what it is like to run a business? When you’re a Girl Scout and participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, that’s exactly what you get to do! It’s a sweet idea to learn lifelong skills while being a part of the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world!

We are so excited about this year’s program, and we hope you are, too. Let’s make this cookie season the best!


Why should your girl participate? Consider these top five reasons:
  1.  Life skills: The Cookie Program helps girls develop unparalleled leadership skills that will stay with them for life, including goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
  2. It’s easy to participate: Your designated troop cookie manager can access online training when it’s most convenient for them. Smart Cookies, our cookie site, will offer girls web- and mobile-based resources to track and manage their business on a digital platform.
  3.  Financial benefits: Troops will earn money to help offset the cost of activities, outings, program supplies, and so much more. Individually, girls can even use their Cookie Dough at a GSSJC shop or use it for a cool event, including overnight camp!
  4.  Earn rewards: Ever year we have a special theme for the Cookie Program, and girls can work toward earning special rewards that now include experiences that help with goal setting!
  5.  Girls will thank you for it: Nearly 80% of all women business owners were Girl Scouts, and many successful businesswomen say they got their start selling Girl Scout Cookies. Thanks to caring volunteers and parents, like you, girls who participate in the Cookie Program gain courage, confidence, and character to pursue their dreams.

Where Does the Revenue Go?

1.   Cover the costs of running the Girl Scout Cookie Program, including the costs of cookies, materials, and logistics.

2.   Fund Take Action projects for the community and amazing girl-led adventures for troops.

3.    The council provide Girl Scout programs in STEM, the outdoors, life skills, and entrepreneurship, as well as camps, leadership training, and more!
