Training

Digital Cookie

Digital Cookie is a fun and easy-to-use tool to help girls kick off their cookie business and take their sales beyond the booth with online and mobile channels that make it easy for cookie fans near and far to support their favorite Girl Scout!

Learn how girls set up their digital storefront and easily inform their customers that their cookie business is open. Customers love how easy it is to place their orders with Digital Cookie. Use the mobile app to take cookie orders too. Learn how girls can take their cookie business to greater heights using the contactless reader during the booth phase. Plus, troop leaders will learn new ways they can use Digital Cookie to support their troop.

Girls/parents will receive a welcome email from Digital Cookie to set up their Digital Cookie site on Dec. 10.

To get Girl Scout ready, register for one of the upcoming Digital Cookie webinars!

Cookie Rewards

Download the 2023 Girl Scout Cookie Rewards list.

Cookie Dough

Starting at the 1000+ level, girls can opt for Cookie Dough instead of a traditional reward. Girls can use Cookie Dough towards annual membership dues, council sponsored activities, resident camp, GSUSA Destinations and Girl Scout merchandise from our council store. Cookie Dough cannot be used for the purchase of cookies or paying cookie debt.

For Juliette Girl Scouts

A Juliette (IRM) is a girl participating in Girl Scouts independently of a troop. Girls in troops may also participate in the cookie program as a Juliette Girl Scout

if their troop is not participating; it will not affect their membership status. Contact Conchetta Jones at cjones@girlscoutsgcnwi.org for more information.

Family Entrepreneur Pins and Badges

Families can get in on the fun as they support their Girl Scout’s cookie business. The Cookie Entrepreneur Family Pin is the best way to make the Girl Scout Cookie Program a family affair! Learn more about the Cookie Entrepreneur Family Pin opportunity.

There are a number of badges your Girl Scout can earn too! Earning a Cookie Business badge gives Girl Scouts a chance to develop her cookie skills and show off entrepreneurial skills. Learn more about the new cookie badges. Entrepreneurship Badges and Pins Poster.pdf]

Why Cookies?

When you sell Girl Scout Cookies, you're doing more than helping your customers stock up on delicious treats (and having lots of fun). You're doing it with a goal in mind—a goal to power new, unique, and amazing experiences for yourself and your troop all year long!

Whether that goal is an unforgettable trip to an exciting new place, a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) project that will change the way you look at the world, or an opportunity to attend Girl Scout camp and make a lifetime of memories, you know how many boxes you need to sell to make it happen. 

When you participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program you're part of the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world—and that’s kind of a huge deal!

Having the opportunity to run your very own cookie business gives you skills essential for success today and in the future:

   Goal Setting

   Decision Making

   Money Management 

   People Skills

   Business Ethics
