Info for Girls

When you sell Girl Scout cookies, you and your team have fun working together to set goals and pick what you want to do throughout the year, then earn profits, badges, and cool recognitions!

Steps to Success

The first and most important step for a successful Girl Scout Cookie Program is to set goals. How much did you sell last year? Which recognitions would like to earn? There’s no better feeling than reaching a goal and knowing you earned the rewards that are sure to come. Here are some great goal-setting tips and sales tools to help you get started. Recognitions will become available online soon, so check back frequently!

Cookie Dough

As girls sell cookies during Girl Scout Cookie Program, they can accumulate Cookie Dough, which are dollars they can spend in our shops and for programs, Council travel, and camp. 2013 Cookie Dough expires on December 18, 2015, and if your girls are saving for a big program or for camp, they may apply for an extension.

Q: How did you sell so many cookies?
A: We went door-to-door selling for 38 hours and did lots of booth sales. Our best cookie booth was at Walmart. We had booths at both doors so people would buy right away.

Q: What advice would you give to other Girl Scouts?
A: Just keep going. Push yourself farther than you think you can. I look at my order card from last year and see who the big buyers were and I call and ask them again. I try to form relationships with people.

Q: What was your cookie goal?
A: First my goal was 1000 boxes then I decided to go for top seller. I was trying to get the top prizes too. Our troop is trying to sell enough cookies to go to Disney World.

Q: What do you like about Girl Scouts?
A: I think it’s a good opportunity to work with your friends. You get to meet lots of different people and it gives you a good work ethic. It’s really fun!

Q: How is the Girl Scout Cookie Program going this year?
A: I feel really good about the sale but I will not be at two of our cookie booths. I am missing two of the first booths which are the big ones.
