2012 GIRL SCOUT COOKIE PROGRAM KICKS OFF JAN. 6

Jan 03, 2012 Posted in Newsroom, Press Releases

What can a cookie do? A Girl Scout Cookie can help girls dream more. Have more opportunities. Give more to their communities and do more than they ever thought possible. There’s more to Girl Scout Cookies.

On Jan. 6, 2012, girls and young women throughout western Pennsylvania will brave the elements to knock on doors as part of the largest financial literacy program of the year for Girl Scouts.

To celebrate the Girl Scouts’ 100th Anniversary in 2012, a new cookie has been introduced-the Savannah Smiles. This crisp lemon wedge cookie honors the heritage of Girl Scouts and Girl Scout Cookies. And, when you hold it just right, you’ll quickly be reminded of that world—famous “Brownie Smile.”

The Girl Scout Cookie Program has helped make Girl Scouting the premier leadership development experience for girls. The Program teaches skills—such as financial literacy and responsibility, teamwork and setting goals—that allow girls to realize their full potential and develop their own personal leadership style. Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls develop five essential skills, important ingredients in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience:

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