Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois kicked off the 2024 Girl Scout Cookie season, the annual event in which Girl Scouts unbox their futures as young female entrepreneurs through the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for girls.
During this highly anticipated time of the year, girls flex their entrepreneurial muscles and acquire important life skills like money management, team building, public speaking, and decision-making. All proceeds from cookie sales stay with local councils and troops to power Girl Scouts’ amazing experiences year-round.
Supporters of the Girl Scout Cookie Program can purchase cookies easily:
· If you know a registered Girl Scout, contact her to find out how she is selling cookies.
· If you do not know a Girl Scout, visit www.GirlScoutsToday.org/cookies. You can select a pin on the map near you to select a troop in your community to purchase Girl Scout Cookies online.
· Cookie Booths will begin for customers to purchase cookies from Girl Scouts at local retailers and community events on February 16, 2024.
In 2024, local Girl Scouts will be selling the following cookie flavors for $6/package:
· Thin Mints
· Girl Scout S’mores
· Toffee-tastics (gluten-free)
All proceeds from Girl Scout Cookies stay local, supporting Girl Scout troops, programs, and camps in your community. When bold, goal-getting Girl Scouts sell a package of cookies, they’re doing much more than what’s seen at face value. Girl Scouts do more than sell delicious treats—they’re entrepreneurial powerhouses creating a more equitable future for themselves and the world. Every box of cookies sold provides invaluable experiences for Girl Scouts, such as service projects, troop travel, and summer camp.
For more than 100 years, Girl Scouts and their enthusiastic supporters have helped ensure the success of the iconic annual cookie program—and they’ve had fun, developed valuable life skills, and made their communities a better place every step of the way.
