MILWAUKEE – (January 11, 2022) – On February 1, Girl Scouts of Wisconsin
Southeast will kick off the 2022 Girl Scout Cookie season in
southeastern Wisconsin, one of the most iconic activities Girl Scouts
engage in and largest girl-led business in the world. This year’s
cookie lineup includes the new Adventurefuls™ cookie, an indulgent
brownie-inspired cookie with caramel-flavored crème and a hint of sea
salt, and an incredible taste of adventure in every bite. By selling
Girl Scout cookies, Girl Scouts gain skills as they build their
business smarts, earn money for activities they choose, and prepare
for amazing adventures that last a lifetime. Community members can
purchase their favorite cookies to support Girl Scouts’ leadership and
entrepreneurial skills, as well as opportunities for girls to
participate in summer camp, travel, and community service
“Encouraging an interest in entrepreneurship builds curiosity, confidence, and problem-solving skills—qualities that prepare Girl Scouts for civic engagement and academic and career success that they can use the rest of their lives,” said Christy Brown, chief executive officer of Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast. “When you purchase your favorite Girl Scout cookies, you are contributing to helping Girl Scouts learn the skills they need to succeed in life and make the world a better place.”
This season, Girl Scouts are again selling cookies in creative, socially distant, and contact-free ways to keep themselves and their customers safe during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Many Girl Scouts will run outdoor drive-thru cookie booths that follow local, state, and CDC guidelines. Girl Scouts will also selling cookies via the SmartCookies online platform for direct shipment or local delivery.
To purchase Girl Scout Cookies this season (February 1 – March 31, 2022):
Every Girl Scout Cookie purchase fuels local Girl Scouts’ adventures throughout the year: exploring what interests them, discovering their passions, and acting on issues they care about. Whether they’re using their STEM skills to solve a problem, changing a law to help their community, having a courageous outdoor experience, or starting an innovative nonprofit, Girl Scouts build a better future for themselves and the world. And through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, which includes the opportunity to earn 13 new Cookie Business badges this year, girls get a taste of being entrepreneurs and learn important online and offline business skills that set them up for success in life.
