The Girl Scout Cookie Program, an integral part of Girl Scouting's Business and Economic Literacy initiative for girls ages 6-17, provides finance, marketing and public speaking skills, along with valuable experiences that build girls' self-confidence and help them develop their own personal leadership style.
Locally, girls will begin to sell Girl Scout cookies on March 10 and end on March 25. We are very proud to announce that all varieties of Girl Scout cookies are now "zero trans fat per serving," in compliance with FDA regulations.
Since 1917, the Girl Scout cookie activity has become a famous annual event that has helped girls develop important leadership skills they will use throughout their lives. Whether they are dreaming of becoming a doctor, teacher, businesswoman, president of the PTA or superstar athlete, the Girl Scout Cookie Program gives them the self-esteem they need to reach for the stars.
Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls manage inventory, set goals, learn money management and develop marketing skills. Essentially, the girls run their own business.
Proceeds from the Girl Scout Cookie Program also go to support programs for girls and training for volunteers across the area.
Expect a Girl Scout to appear on your doorstep or to ask for your order at a booth sale in your community. We are introducing one new cookie this year: Lemonades! They are a delicious shortbread cookie with a sweet lemon icing on the bottom.
Girl Scouts of the Sioux Trails Council will be taking orders from March 10-25. Cookies will begin being delivered on April 14.
