It’s Girl Scout Cookie Time!

28968758891_56e455385d_oGirl Scout Cookies have been around a long time – 100 years to be exact. In the early days, girls took orders and baked their own cookies, then in the 1930’s, when the sale had grown, commercial bakers were introduced and the Girl Scout Cookie Program became what it is today, the world’s largest girl-led business.

Whether you’re a first time cookie novice or an expert #cookieboss, the Girl Scout Cookie Program is a fun, engaging way to learn new things, connect with the community, and fund your Girl Scout fun! So, celebrate 100 years of Girl Scout Cookies by setting goals, hitting the pavement door-to-door selling, and sampling our newest cookie, the Girl Scout S’mores Cookie!

Our new Girl Scout S’mores™ cookie is a crispy graham cookie double dipped in a yummy crème icing and finished with a delicious chocolatey layer. This cookie is inspired by the S’mores origin story. The first Girl Scout recipe for the yummy treat known then as “Some Mores” was first published in 1925 in an issue of The Girl Scout Leader.

Inauguration Day: Reflecting on Girl Scouts’ History of Civic Action

Via GSblog

On Friday, January 20, approximately 75 Girl Scouts from the Nation’s Capital council will voluntarily march in the 2017 Presidential Inaugural Parade, as the council has done over the past 100 years. As part of this unique experience, these girls will gain insight into the time-honored democratic tradition of a peaceful transition of power. Then, the very next day, Saturday, January 21, women and girls, including Girl Scouts, from across the country will descend on Washington to participate in the Women’s March and similar events in communities across the country.

At Girl Scouts, our Movement is made up of individuals who hold political beliefs and convictions as varied as our nation itself. And because every girl has a home at Girl Scouts, every girl in our Movement is allowed her own ideas, opinions, beliefs, and political ideology. Our fundamental value is empowering girls to be leaders in their own lives. By helping them build the courage, confidence, and character to lift their voices, champion their views, and be advocates for the issues and ideas important to them, Girl Scouts supports girls as they become catalysts for change who strengthen their communities.

Of course, we are a nonpartisan nonprofit organization that by law cannot take positions on political candidates or parties—and we take this very seriously.
