2020 National Convention Cookie Credit Program

Thousands of girls and those who support them will come together from around the world between October 23-25, 2020 to attend G.I.R.L. 2020 in Orlando, Florida! If you are one of those Girl Scouts, we have a wonderful cookie program fund raising opportunity for you.

Girls can earn Convention Credits to be used for the Orlando Girl Scout Convention!

Guidelines:

  • Up to the 500 level, girls would not earn rewards –except the theme patch and troop tee.
  • Girls would earn $8 for every 50 packages sold in “convention credits” – for a total of $72.
  • At the 500 and above level, girls can choose program credit – and bank it towards their trip – however, this would be considered regular program credit.
  • Any age can bank convention credit – but only Juniors and above can bank program credit.
  • Convention credit cannot be exchanged for regular program credit – if a Girl Scout banks convention credit, then decides not to go, the credit will not be refunded back in the form of regular program credit.
  • Girls are eligible to participate in this program whether their troop opts out or not.

Click here to participate must opt in no later than March 29, 2020.

Care to Share

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 Soldier’s Angels and Riverbend Troop Support; military support organizations that send care packages.

Girls who sell 12 or more packages earn the Care to Share patch.

Inflatable Ottoman


If a girl sells 24 or more packages, she will earn the patch and an inflatable ottoman.

Cookie Captains

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.

There are optional activities for girls to complete to earn credits, but all girls must complete the online training to earn an initial $5 in program credit and train a Cookie Rookie Troop to earn another $5 in program credit. All Cookie Captains will need to complete a final report as well. Below is a list of other activities to earn additional credits.

  • Help at a Cookie Rally = $5
  • Help half of the girls in a troop setup Digital Cookie accounts = $5
  • Help a troop achieve a PGA (Per Girl Average) of 175 = $15

Once you have completed the training, contact us to sign up, then follow the directions from the training video to get started!

Cookie Captains must complete their final report by Friday, April 12, 2019. Reports can be mailed to 317 7th Avenue SE, Suite 201, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 2401 or emailed to Info@GirlScoutsToday.org.
