If you are a Girl Scout or a Girl Scout Cookie fan you know with the New Year coming in, it also marks “Cookie Season.” This year commemorates a historical year; the 2017 cookie season marks the 100th year of the first known sale of cookies by Girl Scouts!!
According to the Girl Scouts of North East Ohio,”In 1917, five years after Juliette Gordon Low founded the organization, Girl Scouts first sold cookies as a means to finance troop activities. This initial sale evolved into the largest entrepreneurial program in the world, teaching millions of girls essential skills needed to become effective leaders. These leadership skills include goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics.”
Girls who participate in selling cookies set goals and decide how their profits will be used to support their activities, which includes giving back through service projects.
In celebration of the centennial, the Girl Scouts introduced a new cookie: the Girl Scout S’mores TM…The Girl Scout S’moresTM
Crunchy graham sandwich cookies with creamy chocolate and marshmallowy filling!
