Sally and Rachel from Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Badgerland Council came in to tell us all about cookie sales, kicking off this weekend! You can find booths at Festival, Walmart, ACE, and more locations. CLICK HERE or download the Girl Scout Cookie Finder app for the full list!
The Girl Scout Cookie Program helps girls develop five essential life and leadership skills:
Goal Setting (setting sales goals and making a plan to reach them)
Decision Making (deciding how her troop will spend their cookie earnings)
Money Management (making a budget, taking orders, and handling money)
Business Ethics (honesty and responsibility)
People Skills (talking to customers)
