National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend, which has become a national holiday for Girl Scout Cookie fans is Friday, February 27 through March 1. The 2015 Cookie Weekend will mark the 98th year of Girl Scouts selling cookies and learning the important skills for life: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
Local Girl Scouts sell an average 200 boxes per girl. One hundred percent of the revenue after expenses are paid stays within the local council. Girls earn $1 million directly for their troop treasuries. The council uses additional proceeds to support girls and volunteers.
Consumers who celebrate National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend are encouraged to ask girls how they give back to their communities with cookie earnings, and what they learn by selling cookies. Those who want to share via social media the fun they're having on Cookie Weekend are asked to use the hashtag #cookieboss and tag @girlscouts. We encouraged girls and volunteers to send us photos of what they are doing this weekend. We'll retweet, share, and post to keep the excitement going!
