The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the nation’s foremost entrepreneurship learning experience for girls. Through participation, girls can earn Girl Scout Patches and Badges by completing age-appropriate activities, which develop their marketing, customer service and public speaking skills.
The cookie program depends on the public’s support for its success. With the merger of Connecticut’s five Girl Scout Councils, the Girl Scout Cookie Sale has now become one annual sale. Cookies booth sales will begin in March at your local shopping centers.
Proceeds from the cookie program directly benefit all of the Connecticut Girl Scouts in your communities, including the Girl Scout troop or group from which you buy your cookies.
