Cookie Badges & Mentorship

Every Girl Scout has the opportunity to earn the 5 Skills Cookie Badge! Here's how, at each level:

Cookie Captains are Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors or Ambassadors who have participated in previous cookie programs and plan to participate in this year’s cookie program. They mentor Cookie Rookies, Daisy or Brownie troops participating in the cookie program for the first time.

Cookie Captains who complete the required 10 hours and turn in a final report earn and receive an exclusive 2018 Cookie Captain patch.

Cookie Rookies benefit from older girl mentorship and have fun with experienced sister Girl Scouts!

Sign-ups and training to become a Cookie Captain coming soon! Contact Kaylie Leslie-Larson at kleslielarson@girlscoutssoaz.org for more information.

Cookie Contests
Bling Your Booth

Dream big and go for bold! This year’s Bling My Booth contest is themed “Go For Bold: Share Your Cookie Goal!”  Use your imagination to decorate your booth and help tell the story of YOUR unique cookie season goal. For example...

  • Is your troop saving up for surf camp, or a backpacking trip? Decorate your booth “under the sea”-style or with an “on the trail” theme!
  • Does your troop have a Gift of Caring project picked out? Why not make a poster with pictures and information that tells customers about the local organization their purchases support? 
  • Planning to use cookie proceeds to support your Highest Awards project? Now's the time to bling your booth in a way that tells the community how you're going to make the world a better place!
  • No matter what your goal is, coloring in a thermometer or road map is a great way to share your progress with customers!

These are just a few suggestions to help you start brainstorming. Cnce your booth is blinged, don't forget to submit a photo and a story about your Cookie Season goals to Kristin or Kaylie, and enter to win a prize for your whole troop!
