After 11 years of selling Girl Scout Cookies, I was given the opportunity to be a Cookie Captain. Like the troop I was helping to lead, I started out as a Daisy 12 years ago. I thought it would be a great opportunity to take this chance because I wanted to mainly focus on my Gold Award this year, but still be involved in the cookie selling season. Being a Cookie Captain was perfect because I was involved in a leadership roll, met a group of some very bright young girls, and still got to be involved in this year’s cookie season.
As a Cookie Captain, I attended multiple cookie booths with the girls, as well as a meeting to talk about importance of greetings, manners, and marketing when selling cookies. The troop was very smart and all understood how to act according to the Girl Scout Law. I would also make posters for booths, including holiday and special event posters. In doing all this, I still let them have full independence when speaking with buyers, handling money, and communicating with customers (with guidance if needed).
We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.
