Girl Scout Cookies Now On Sale



Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma entered its 101st year of cookie sales, with its 2018 season beginning Feb. 3. Booth sales begin Feb. 16 and end March 18.

Returning this year is the Girl Scout S’mores, a crunchy graham sandwich cookie with a chocolate and marshmallow filling that was launched last year, along with other popular cookies including Thin Mints and Samoas.

During Girl Scout Cookie season, each G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) sets out to sell delicious cookies while also building entrepreneurial and business skills that are imperative for leadership and future success.

Almost one million Girl Scouts participate in the cookie program each year, generating nearly $800 million in sales during the average season.

All net revenue raised—100 percent of it—stays within our community. Councils use cookie earnings to power amazing experiences for girls through their programming, while girls and their troops decide how to invest in impactful community projects, personal enrichment opportunities, and more.

In addition to selling cookies door-to-door and at booth sales, Girl Scouts will also sell through the Digital Cookie platform, an innovative and educational web-based addition to the cookie program that helps girls run and manage their Girl Scout Cookie businesses online. Now in its fourth year, the Digital Cookie platform provides girls with invaluable business and science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills that prepare them for 21st-century leadership.
