New Badges and Awards for 2021-22

We are excited to release 28 new badges and two new awards that prepare today’s Girl Scouts to be successful leaders! With a focus on entrepreneurship, math in nature, and digital leadership, these badges embolden girls to navigate a changing society and build the futures they want for themselves and the world.  Girl Scouts of all levels can channel their inner changemaker for our NEW global awards, which are meetings available in the Volunteer Toolkit. Earning the badges is also easier than ever: based on feedback from girls, volunteers, and families, the new badge booklets now include a volunteer guide and printable activity pages for girls, as well as new badge overviews in the Volunteer Toolkit and fun and fast badge introductions in gsLearn.

Cookie Business (Grades K-12)

The NEW Cookie Business badges are the best way for Girl Scouts to develop business skills and learn to think like entrepreneurs as they run their own business.

My Cookie Team

Juniors discover that the secret to success is teamwork as they work together to decide how to use their cookie money, build their own budget, and more.

Cookie Collaborator

Juniors take teamwork to the next level as they look within and beyond their troop for support in reaching their goals.

My Cookie Venture

Cadettes make connections between their cookie business and other types of businesses as they create their own mission statement.

Cookie Market Researcher

Cadettes use market research to find new ways to reach customers. Girls research the Girl Scout Cookie brand and find out how to leverage the power of that brand to market their business.

Cookie Innovator

Cadettes become business innovators as they come up with bigger and bolder goals than ever before and find unique ways to reach them.

My Cookie Network

Seniors think about how to leverage their network, including their team customers and people who support their cookie business.

Cookie Boss

Seniors gain new skills as they take charge of their business, managing all business logistics. They set goals, create a budget, manage inventory, and create pitches.

My Cookie Business Resume

Ambassadors gain new marketing skills as they learn to leverage data, experts, and past experiences to drive their plan. Then they translate their skills into a resume and portfolio.

Cookie Influencer

Ambassadors charge of their own skill development by choosing a business skill they’d like to grow as they lead their last cookie business.

Design with Nature
