Celebrate National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend, Feb. 23-25, 2018, with GSCO’s new Girl Scout S’mores contest. Together with Little Brownie Bakers, Girl Scouts of Colorado is announcing two new ways for girls and troops to win big when promoting Girl Scout S’mores cookies!

Decorate your booth with a s’mores theme for a chance to win a Girl Scout Cookie costume and a jumbo cookie box filled with Girl Scout S’mores for you to enjoy. You are welcome to enter your booth into both the #BlingYourBooth contest and S’mores Booth contest as long as it has a s’mores theme. Two booths will be selected by an independent panel to receive the prize. The booth can take place at any time, but entries must be received between Feb. 23-25. To enter, just email a photo of your s’mores-themed booth to GSCO Public Relations Director AnneMarie Harper, being sure to include a little information about your troop, your cookie sales strategy, and Hometown Hero. The winners will be announced on Tuesday, Feb. 27.

For troops, every two cases of Girl Scout S’mores taken from the cupboard or received via troop-to-troop transfer through the end of the cookie program will earn you an entry into a contest. Two troops will be chosen at random from the entries to receive a cookie costume and a jumbo cookie box filled with Girl Scout S’mores for their troop to enjoy.

S’mores selling tips

Be sure to lead with Girl Scout S’mores! Instead of asking customers “Would you like to buy Girl Scout Cookies?”, start the conversation with “I’ve got Girl Scout S’mores, would you like to try them? These cookies were so popular last year we sold out quickly.”

Booth etiquette reminders

With the start of council-sponsored booths, it’s a good time to remind the girls and families in your troop about booth etiquette. Ask girls to be polite and thank people whether they purchase or not. Be courteous to arriving troops and have your table packed and ready to move at the end of your time slot. Clean up all trash and remove all empty cases. Remember that girls make all sales, but an adult should have the money on their person at all times.

Have s’more fun with the return of Girl Scout S’mores

From Girl Scouts of the USA

We’re excited to announce that our popular Girl Scout S’mores™ will return as part of the 2018 Girl Scout Cookie season lineup. With their debut last season, Girl Scout S’mores became the most popular flavor to launch in the 100 years of Girl Scouts selling cookies—whoa!

Starting next cookie season (we’re already counting down the days!), Girl Scout Cookie bosses across the United States will offer one of the two varieties of Girl Scout S’mores: one is a crispy graham cookie double dipped in a crème icing and enrobed in a chocolatey coating. The other is a crunchy graham sandwich cookie with creamy chocolate and marshmallowy filling, which is embossed with designs that honor Girl Scouts’ Outdoor badges.

Did you know the tradition of making and enjoying s’mores in the outdoors was popularized by Girl Scouts as early as the 1920s? What a sweet symbol of our commitment to all the outdoors has to offer girls! Speaking of which, our newest Outdoor badges and programming provide girls with even more opportunities to have outdoor adventures like going on eco-friendly camping trips, collecting environmental data, and navigating the wilderness.

In fact, according to a recent report, Girl Scouts are almost twice as likely as their non–Girl Scout peers to participate in outdoor activities (76 percent versus 43 percent). Which is one of many reasons why Girl Scouts have “s’more” fun and develop stronger leadership skills compared to non–Girl Scouts.

And thanks to the Girl Scout Cookie Program, your purchase helps fund these new adventures and life-changing opportunities for girls—from trips and community projects to summer camp and charitable donations. The more cookies you buy, the more you help today’s girls develop into tomorrow’s leaders!
