Be booth ready
Council Booth sales start on February 15.
While girls are out and about selling Girl Scout Cookies, they often get asked about Girl Scouting in general, and we want everyone to know that Girl Scouts is about so much more than selling cookies! Let’s show all our cookie customers how the world’s largest girl-led entrepreneurial programprepares girls to lead, learn, and succeed all while making it possible for them to embark on amazing adventures, form a lifetime of memories, and unleash the power of G.I.R.L. (go-getters, innovators, risk-takers, leaders)™ to change the world. Share this two-sided sheet with girls and families for tips on how to answer “Why Girl Scouts?” like a pro! Troop volunteers can also take a look at this Booth Essentials sheet to prepare for scenarios that sometimes come up while selling cookies.
Check out the rest of our cookie program information and resources.
