There’s a season between winter and spring that is anticipated as much — or more — as Daylight Savings Time and warmer temperatures. That bright spot ahead is Girl Scout Cookie season! On Feb. 1, Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming (GSMW) will kick off its 2019 Cookie Program.
Girl Scouts across Montana and Wyoming will begin taking pre-orders on Friday for eight varieties including Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-si-dos, Trefoils, Savannah Smiles, Girl Scout S’mores™ and the gluten free variety, Toffee-tastics.
If a Girl Scout doesn’t contact you, call Deb at 406-480-9236.
This staple of Americana is available several ways over the coming weeks and months:
• Girl Scouts will take pre-orders Feb. 1-17, with delivery in mid-March
• Cookies can be ordered online via Digital Cookie from a Girl Scout through April 14
• Cookies can be purchased during Booth Sales March 22 to April 14; during that time you can use the booth-locator at girlscoutcookies.org
Fans of Savannah Smiles will want to stock up on the lemon-flavored cookie as 2019 will be the last season for that variety. That means there’s likely a new cookie variety coming in 2020!
Once again, Girl Scout Cookies in Montana and Wyoming will sell for $4 per box with the exception of our specialty cookies, the S’mores and gluten-free Toffee-tastics, which sell for $5 per box.
During the Cookie season, all ages of Girl Scouts set out to sell delicious cookies while also building entrepreneurial and business skills that are imperative for leadership and future success including: goal setting, decision making, money management, business ethics and people skills.
While many are familiar with Girl Scout Cookies, few realize the purpose and depth of the Cookie Program. It represents the largest financial investment in girls annually in the United States and is a powerful entrepreneurship incubator for the next generation of female leaders. At a time when girls’ needs and issues collect fewer than eight cents of every dollar granted by philanthropic foundations in the country, each and every Girl Scout Cookie purchase is key to supporting the change-makers of today and tomorrow.
All of the net revenue raised — 100 percent of it — stays within the Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming (GSMW) council. Councils use cookie earnings to power amazing experiences for girls through programming, while girls and their troops decide how to invest in impactful community projects, personal enrichment opportunities, and more.
