Courage Confidence Character

Cookie Dates 2013

For Girl Scouts & Parents

Our Annual Girl Scout Cookie Program will kickoff of January 26, 2013. So when your local Girl Scouts come calling with this year’s best- selling cookies, remember you’re saying hello to tomorrow’s business leaders.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led business in the country! Everything girls do in Girl Scouting is designed to help them grow into leaders of courage, confidence and character. Girls set cookie goals to support their chosen Girl Scout activities for the year, to fund community service and leadership projects, to attend summer camp, to travel to destinations near and far, and much more. Plus, our cookie customers get a great product and support girls right here in Montana and Wyoming.

Learning Life Skills

The activity of selling cookies is directly related to our purpose of helping all girls realize their full potential and become strong, confident and resourceful citizens. Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program girls develop five essential skills:

  • Goal setting
  • Decision making
  • Money management
  • People skills
  • Business ethics

What’s New?

For the first time in thirteen years, the Girl Scouts of the USA has changed its iconic cookie box! The boxes sport not only a new look, but a new purpose: to showcase the five lifelong financial literacy and entrepreneurial skills that the Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches. You will notice that each individual cookie will be wearing a sash that will explain the different opportunities and badges that individual girls can earn.

Always remember to follow safety rules as we begin the pre-sale. If you have any questions, please contact Bernie Steffan, Product Sales Manager at 1-800-736-5243 or Bernies@gsmw.org. You may also contact Roberta Lynch at 1-800-736-5243 or Robertal@gsmw.org.
