The cookie business is a serious business which is largely run by all girls. The 2017 Cookie Weekend will mark 100 years of Girl Scouts selling cookies. Girl Scouts councils across the country will be celebrating this cookie event on the weekend of February 24-26, 2017. This weekend is a special one as all councils join together to celebrate and share our cookie program with everyone!
During National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend, girls will be able to sell cookies at booths, door to door, and through Digital Cookie. First, secure your cookie booth location(s) by deciding which of the locations will maximize your cookie sales. Next, check out the Cookie Program Safety Tips for best practices when selling cookies door to door. Lastly, tell your family, friends and cookie buyers to download the Girl Scout Cookie Finder app so they can keep up with where and when you are selling!
Did you know? One hundred percent of the net revenue raised through the Girl Scout Cookie sales stays within your local Girl Scout council to fund program activities and Take Action projects. Girls in troops as well as IRM’s (Individually Registered Members) will decide, using their decision making skills, how their troop cookie money is spent.
We want to help make this year’s sales the most successful one yet! Here are some great resources to take your booth sales up a notch:
…And don’t forget to purchase your National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend Patch!
