Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls empower themselves as they earn their own money to put toward a range of experiences, some of which are illustrated on this year’s refreshed cookie packaging—from adventure-packed camping and canoeing, to exploring space science and designing robots, to taking meaningful action to improve girls’ communities. Every purchase of Girl Scout Cookies makes experiences like these possible for girls in your community, giving them hands-on opportunities to hone valuable skills like decision making and business ethics. In fact, nine in ten Girl Scouts say the cookie program has built their interest in entrepreneurship and given them the skills to succeed.

This cookie season Girl Scouts has introduced a sweet new way to support young female entrepreneurs who learn essential business skills like money management and goal setting through the cookie program: meet Lemon-Ups, a crispy lemon cookie baked with messages inspired by Girl Scout entrepreneurs. “I am a go-getter” and “I am an innovator” are among the eight phrases that bring the experience of Girl Scouting to life. The new cookie joins the 2020 lineup, which also includes favorites such as Thin Mints®, Samoas®, and Trefoils®.

Girl Scout Cookies can only be purchased from a registered Girl Scout. To find Girl Scouts selling cookies near you, visit gswpa.org/cookies or use the official Girl Scout Cookie Finder app, free on iOS and Android devices.
