When she sells Girl Scout Cookies she's taking her first steps as an entrepreneur and learning how to achieve her dreams! Through the Cookie Program, girls earn awesome rewards, earn funds for their troops, and support your local council to keep our movement strong.
Girl Scouts can try multiple selling techniques during cookie season.
Digital Cookie is a fun and easy-to-use tool to help Girl Scouts sell cookies online and take credit card payments for in-person sales.
To start using Digital Cookie, look for an email from "Girl Scout Cookies" with the subject "Ready. Set. Register for Digital Cookie." Please check your Spam, Junk, and Promotion folders for the registration email. Contact our team if you need help.
Customers can purchase cookies to donate to men and women serving in the military through a council-sponsored program called Care to Share. Cookies purchased go directly to military personnel and essential workers in our community through organizations like Iowa’s Bravest, Riverbend Troop Support, and Soldier’s Angels.
Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois facilitates the delivery of cookies purchased through this program. In 2023, Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois collected donations of 24,340 packages of cookies for the Care to Share Program!
Girls who sell 15 or more packages earn the Gift of Caring patch.
The Juliette program allows girls to register individually for Girl Scouts, mixing and matching different activities to meet their needs and interests.
Juliettes can participate in the Cookie Program, learn business skills, and earn rewards! This includes girls who may be in a troop, but are choosing to participate individually in the Cookie Program if her troop is not participating.
Sisters selling cookies that sell a Per Girl Average (PGA) of 100+ packages will receive a custom 2024 Sisters Patch. Please fill out the form to claim your rewards. This form must be completed by April 5, 2024 to be eligible to receive patch.
Cookie Captains are girls and troops that are experienced cookie bosses. At your local Cookie Rally, Cookie Captains will have special activities and receive a patch.
Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors have the opportunity to become Cookie Captains and earn additional program credits! Because the largest girl-led business in the world is a major part of Girl Scouts and greatly benefits our council, we want to provide older girls an opportunity to share their expertise with younger girls.
Cookie Rookies are girls and troops new to the Cookie Sale Program. Cookie Rookie girls will receive special training at your local Cookie Rally (and a special patch!).
Girls will learn:
Girl Scouts who sell $350 in Fall Program Product and 1,000 packages or more cookies during the 2024 Cookie Program will be invited to Join the club. They will earn a patch and be invited to exclusive meetings to have their voices heard on rewards and product program ideas and input.
Girl Scouts who sell 1,500 packages or more of cookies during the 2024 Cookie Program will be invited to a celebration at the conclusion of the program with the CEO of Girl Scouts Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois, Diane Nelson!
