Cookie Program Recognitions

Girl Scouts of Central Illinois offers an empowering recognition program that affords Girl Scouts the opportunity to make a variety of choices. Through this recognition program, the girls will follow a decision making process that includes goal setting, product choice evaluation, and making purchasing decisions based on what they have earned. Our recognition program not only rewards and encourages girls to set goals and work as a team to achieve them, but they will have a hands on experience with purchasing and financial decision making.

Just a Reminder . . .

  • Cookie Dough and recognitions will be earned throughout the entire cookie program including booth sales!
  • Girls will receive $0.23 in Cookie Dough for every box they sell. A girl who sells 100 boxes of cookies will receive $23 in Cookie Dough. To encourage goal setting girls must sell 50 boxes of cookies to qualify for Cookie Dough. Once a girl qualifies by selling 50 boxes of cookies she will earn Cookie Dough from box one.
  • Cookie Dough may be used to pay for 2014 activities and events (resident camp, day camp, one-day events, and bus trips), membership registration, cookie recognitions, and merchandise in council Trefoil Boutiques.
  • Cookie Dough expires September 20, 2014.
  • Each troop will receive .50 cents per box of cookies sold. Additionally, troops will earn $1.00 per box for each Operation Cookie Share box sold.
  • Girls who sell five or more packages for Operation Cookie Share will earn a Cookie Share patch.
  • Girl Scout Cadette, Senior and Ambassador troops will be allowed to opt out of receiving recognitions and cookie dough in exchange for a higher troop profit.
