Girl Scouts of South Carolina-Mountains to Midlands and Girl Scouts of the USA have launched the 2020 Girl Scout Cookie Season. Girl Scouts from across the United States become entrepreneurs as they earn money to power their own leadership opportunities and adventures.

This season, Girl Scouts is announcing a sweet new way to celebrate young female leaders: refreshed packaging reflecting the amazing experiences cookie earnings make possible for girls.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls about entrepreneurship as they have fun learning essential skills like money management, public speaking, and decision making, which set them up for a lifetime of success. Nine in ten Girl Scouts say the cookie program has built their entrepreneurship skills and their interest in pursuing entrepreneurship as a career path—so every cookie purchase is an investment in the world-changing business leaders of tomorrow. What’s more, each and every purchase stays local to power experiences and leadership opportunities for girls in communities across the United States.

 GSUSA’s refreshed cookie packaging continues to emphasize what the cookie program is all about, and the updated images feature current Girl Scouts taking part in a diverse range of experience available to members—from adventure-packed camping and canoeing, to exploring space science and designing robots, to taking action to improve their communities. Every purchase of Girl Scout Cookies makes experiences like these possible for girls in your local community.

And, with one of two lemon cookies available nationwide this year, Girl Scouts of South Carolina-Mountains to Midlands is celebrating the Lemonades cookie, a tasty way to support young female entrepreneurs. Lemonades, alongside classics such as the Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, and Peanut Butter Patties varieties, are savory slices of shortbread with lemon-flavored icing. The variety is offered in select council markets for as long as supplies last. 

Girl Scout Cookies can only be bought from a registered Girl Scout. To find a booth sale near you, beginning February 21, visit GSSC-mm.org or use the official Girl Scout Cookie Finder app, free on iOS and Android devices.
