Girl Scouts celebrate Go-Getter Cookie Entrepreneurs on National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend
Feb 21, 2018 12:02PM
23–25 - Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois will join other Girl Scout councils
across the United States to participate in National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend
2018. Selling cookies has empowered girls for over 101 years. The
weekend will highlight some of the most creative and successful Girl Scout Cookie
entrepreneurs from all over northern Illinois. One hundred percent of the net
revenue girls raise through cookie sales funds local Girl Scout council and troop
programs and community projects.
During Girl Scout Cookie season, each young G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ not only sells delicious cookies but also builds life skills, such as goal setting, people skills, and business ethics—all essential to 21st century leadership. The more cookies girls sell, the more earnings they have to power impactful community projects and personal enrichment experiences, like camping and traveling. Girls set goals to decide how they want to invest the funds they earn from their sales. Girl Scouts are doing amazing things made possible by each and every cookie sale.
Hungry customers will be able to get their hands on their favorite Girl Scout Cookies, like Thin Mints and Samoas, as well as the popular Girl Scout S’mores™. To find Girl Scouts selling cookies near you, visit www.girlscoutcookies.org or use the official Girl Scout Cookie Finder app, free on iOS and Android devices.
