The Older Girl’s Guide to the Girl Scout Cookie Sale

February 8, 2016

Girl Scout Cookies

By Zara M., Girl Scout Girl Board Director, Girl Scout Ambassador

It’s that time of the year again when winter gear comes out of hiding, the first snow flurries fall, and most of all, the Girl Scout Cookie Sale begins. Every year, girls set off on the quest to sell and deliver as many of these sweet treats to family, friends and customers alike. Along with satisfying people with these once-a-year snacks, the program helps girls learn five important life skills: goal-setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.

Since my first year in Girl Scouts, selling cookies in the New Year has become a tradition for me. My first year selling cookies was a team effort. My parents helped me find customers and learn the skills necessary to be a successful young businesswoman. As I progressed through Girl Scouts, I became more and more independent in my cookie sales. I initiated and coordinated sale trips around the neighborhood with my parents, solicited friends and teachers at school, and became more accountable for money earned during the sale.

While I may no longer be as quite as cute as my younger Girl Scout sisters (who can say no to a Girl Scout Daisy or Brownie selling cookies? Not me!), there are many benefits to being an older girl during the Cookie Sale! We have a wealth of experience under our belt (or our sash!), developed and polished sales tactics and skills, and can tap into a large customer base that has been continually growing for the past 10+ years. Younger Girl Scouts look up to us and we are a role models for them as they become leaders in their communities. So, to all my teen Girl Scouts – wear your sashes proudly, showcase you fantastic business skills, help your fellow Girl Scouts, and ROCK this year’s sale! Let’s continue to be role models and help every Girl Scout succeed!
