Family and Caregivers Guides
Cookie Badges & Pins

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is so much more than a box of cookies. It’s a programmatic approach to teaching the five skills and the foundation of the Girl Scouts Entrepreneurial Pillar. When girls sell Girl Scout Cookies, they practice goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics as they learn to think like an entrepreneur. Girl Scouts can earn badges and pins each year they run their own Girl Scout cookie business.

Cookie Program Badges & Pins

These new earned cookie and entrepreneur badges are available in the Volunteer Toolkit (VTK).

Cookie Entrepreneur Family Pins

Cookie Season is more fun with family! The Cookie Entrepreneur Family pin collection helps girls learn essential skills and how to think like entrepreneurs with support from their families. Each Girl Scout level has its own set of fun and educational requirements to help families guide their Girl Scout as she runs her own cookie business year after year. Girls can earn all 13 pins in the collection – one unique pin for every year they participate!

COVID-19 Safety Protocol for Cookie Sellers

Girls and families are given options when participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program so they can determine the pathway that is right for them. Check out all of the ways girls can participate in this year’s cookie sales  here.

Troops have a range of booth-hosting options—from virtual to differing levels of in-person—to support a comfortable, safe experience for all girls. Girls and volunteers who exhibit signs of illness may not participate in booth and door-to-door sales and deliveries. Girls who are engaging in in-person or booth sales must have a COVID-19 waiver submitted to their troop leader.

Digital Cookie: With the help of her parent/caregiver, a Girl Scout sets up Digital Cookie to sell online. Orders opened January 3, in-person contactless deliveries will begin February 18. This is a digital pathway where money is not exchanged. Girls may drop cookies on front porches or engage in other contactless forms of cookie delivery. Customers may also opt to purchase and donate cookies to first responders and essential workers through our Community Cookie program through their Digital Cookie online purchases. 
 
In-Person Sales: Starting January 3, and based on comfort level, a girl can begin selling in person. Girls may sell door-to-door, to family and friends, teammates, and beyond, asking her network of contacts to support her goals. Girls must wear face coverings, follow proper hand sanitizing procedures, and maintain social distancing when visiting homes in her community. 
 
Family Booth Sales: Girls and their families can work with their Troop Cookie Manager to set up and signup for family booth sales starting February 18 as a new way to reach more customers. My Family Booth Sales can be at location secured by Council or Troop (TCM will need to sign family up via eBudde) OR can be outside the home on private property. Girls and adults must wear a mask covering the nose and mouth and maintain social distance. Additionally, hand sanitizer should be available for girls, adults and customers. Parents/caregivers and Girl Scouts hosting a My Family Sales Booth must be from the same household. No more than two adults and three Girl Scouts can be present. No non-member siblings are permitted. 
 
Troop and Council Booth Sales: Starting February 18, girls can participate in Troop Booth Sales and Council Booth Sales with local partners like grocery stores and more. Council Booth Sale locations are secured by Girl Scouts of Hawaii and troops can sign up for slots in eBudde, our Cookie Program software. Girls and adults must wear a mask covering the nose and mouth and maintain social distance. Some vendors may have additional requirements to which girls will be expected to adhere in accordance with our partner agreements. Additionally, hand sanitizer should be available for girls, adults and customers. When hosting a Troop Booth, be sure to follow all state and county COVID-19 safety guidelines. No non-member siblings are permitted. Some vendor partners may have additional limitations on the number of girls and adults that are allowed to be present at booth sales. 

Virtual Booth Sales: Check out the Virtual Girl Scout Cookie Booth Guide for tips on how to host a virtual cookie booth!

Additional Safety Guidelines and Expectations

Contactless payments: We highly encourage girls and troops to accept contactless payments. Girls/troops can do this using the Digital Cookie mobile app. As a reminder, girls must have a Digital Cookie site setup in order to use the mobile app.

Contactless Transactions Through Digital Cookies here.

Contactless Cookie Delivery: Girls and volunteers will need to provide contactless cookie delivery to their customers. This means porch drop-offs for in-person girl deliveries (send customers a text when a safe distance away to verify they received their order) or placing of cookies into the back of a customer’s vehicle instead of being handed directly to the customer.

Follow All Safety Guidelines: Girls and volunteers must follow all local and GSH Council guidance. This includes wearing safety masks at all booth locations. Businesses may have specific safety requirements (like the number of girls, cleaning protocols) that girls and troops must follow. These instructions will be included in eBudde.
