Now is the perfect time to join the Girl Scout Cookie fun! This time of year, there are more ways than ever to participate and reach your goals! Plus, don’t forget that rewards are cumulative, so keep your eye on the prize!
Girl Scout Cookies are in demand! Hosting a cookie booth is an excellent way for girls to achieve their goals, while bonding with sister Girl Scouts!

Use these 5 tips to make sure customers can easily find and buy cookies from you!
1. Be Visible! Share the online Cookie Finder, so customers can see where booths are happening. Bling your booth to stand out even more! Create a theme and special signs or get a Booth in a Bag Kit. You can even dress up in a cookie costume; check with a Gathering Place location for availability!
Note: Friends and family who want cookies shipped directly to them can order from your Digital Cookie site!
Reference the Troop Cookie Managers Cookie Season Guide for more digital sales tips!
3. Time It Right! Host a booth on National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend, Feb. 22-24.
4. Show Off Cookie Varieties! An attractive display will attract customers. Offer free, bite-sized samples and consider themed bundles, grouping a few boxes together with ribbon and a bow.
5. Don’t Give Up! For customers not interested in buying cookies for themselves, you can always ask if they would be willing to donate cookies through the Gift of Caring program.
6. Look to Your Fellow Girl Scouts for Inspiration! Step out of your comfort zone and find innovative ways to share the Cookie Program with new customers. Check out Maddie’s cookie presentation to her dad’s coworkers at iHeartMedia!
Ask your parents/guardians, family, and friends if you can make a sales presentation of your own at their place of work.
Or make a “pitch” video of your own and be creative! Take an example from viral sensation and Greater Los Angeles Girl Scout Kayla:
