GEORGIA (January26, 2024) — Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia recently kicked off the 2024 Girl
Scout Cookie season, the annual event in which Girl Scouts unbox their futures as young female
entrepreneurs through the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for girls.
During this highly-anticipated time of the year, girls flex their entrepreneurial muscles and acquire
important life skills like money management, team building, public speaking and decision making.
All proceeds from cookie sales stay with local councils and troops to power Girl Scouts’ amazing
experiences year-round.
This year’s theme, Unbox the Future, aims to remove social barriers that often keep girls boxed
in. When bold, goal-getting Girl Scouts sell a package of cookies, they’re doing much more than
what’s seen at face value. Girl Scouts do more than sell delicious treats—they’re entrepreneurial
powerhouses creating a more equitable future for themselves and the world. Every box of cookies
sold provides invaluable experiences for Girl Scouts such as service projects, troop travel and
summer camp.
This season, cookie lovers can enjoy the full assortment of Girl Scout Cookies, including fan favorites
such as Thin Mints®, Samoas®, Do-si-dos ® and more.
Nearly 700k girls participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, which provides vital girl-led
entrepreneurial skills that build courage, confidence and character. As a result, girls obtain limitless
barrier-breaking futures outside the box with transferable life skills. Girl Scouts can earn a variety of
badges and awards to develop valuable business skills including Cookie Business badges, Financial
Literacy badges, Cookie Entrepreneur Family pins and Entrepreneur badges.
