The much-anticipated Girl Scout Cookie season is officially underway as Girl Scouts of South Carolina—Mountains to Midlands kick off the 2024 Girl Scout Cookie Program in the Midlands and Upstate. This annual event transforms thousands of young Girl Scouts into budding entrepreneurs, providing them with valuable life skills and creating memorable experiences.
- Unbox the Future Theme: This year’s theme, “Unbox the Future,” aims to break down social barriers that may restrict the potential of girls. Girl Scouts are encouraged to be bold and goal-oriented as they sell cookies, contributing to a more equitable future for themselves and the world.
- Entrepreneurial Skills: During the cookie season, girls flex their entrepreneurial muscles and develop essential life skills such as money management, team building, public speaking, and decision-making.
- Local Impact: All proceeds from cookie sales remain within local councils and troops, supporting Girl Scouts’ year-round activities and experiences. These funds contribute to service projects, troop travel, and summer camp opportunities.
- Cookie Assortment: Cookie lovers can indulge in the full assortment of Girl Scout Cookies, featuring favorites like Thin Mints, Samoas, Do-si-dos, and more.
- Badges and Awards: Girl Scouts can earn various badges and awards, including Cookie Business badges, Financial Literacy badges, Cookie Entrepreneur Family pins, and Entrepreneur badges, enhancing their business skills.
