Cookie Rally helps Girl Scouts find their wings

Cookie Captain Samantha K. rallied plenty of Girl Scout Juliettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors to help launch the cookie season in Steamboat with a Find Your Wings Cookie Rally!

Older Girl Scouts set up skill booths to help girls to learn more about each cookie and many of the aspects of selling Girl Scout Cookies. They were able to do a butterfly craft to remind them to “find their wings” and soar as a cookie seller. They got a chance to make a cookie sale poster to use at their own booth. Girls also got to see the cookie sale incentives up close and personal as a reminder to set their goals high. They were excited about the Cookie Rally patch they earned by participating!

Leaders and girls attending the rally were given a check sheet as to which requirements of each level’s financial literacy badges were addressed at the rally. Such a helpful idea!

Troops were able to connect with our service unit cookie manager to ask any questions of him and make a personal connection for later on.

Of course, all of the various cookies were on hand to taste, including the new Lemon-Ups!

Go-Getter Juliettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors showed their leadership skills in planning and implementing a very informative cookie rally for all ages of  Girl Scouts in Steamboat Springs. Innovative ways to learn about the cookie program included a pop-up tent decorated as an example! All our Girl Scouts are risk-takers in making the commitment to sell Girl Scout Cookies and improve their personal finance and communication and organizational skills.
