In addition to the five key skills girls learn from the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls whose troop chooses the base troop proceeds plan can earn individual girl rewards. Direct, booth and online sales, as well as cookies sold for Operation Sweet Treat all count towards a girl’s end-of-sale totals.
Rewards are cumulative, which means girls will earn the reward for the highest level achieved and each reward at the lower levels of achievement (with the exception of the achievement bar, which is earned for the highest level of sales). Girls, whose troop chooses a proceeds plan higher than the base plan, forfeit all individual girl rewards other than those specifically noted.
All girls, regardless of their troop proceed plan selected, who sell at least 400 packages of cookies earn an overnight (with or without an accompanying responsible adult) at one of our three Girl Scout camp properties during 2020 year or a themed wet/dry bag.
The 2020 Camp Thanks-A-Lot dates will be posted in December!

Earn Scholarships for Education
$25,000 in scholarships will be awarded for the 2020 Girl Scout Cookie Program. Each girl who sells 500 or more packages will have her name entered in a drawing to win a scholarship. For every additional 500 packages sold, her name will be entered in the drawing again.
We will draw for the followings scholarships at the GEO event on June 13, 2020:
- Two- $500 scholarships at the Daisy level
- Three- $500 scholarships at the Brownie level
- Four- $500 scholarships at the Junior level
- Five- $1,000 scholarships at the Cadette level
- Five- $2,000 scholarships at the Senior/Ambassador level
In addition to the drawings above, the council will also award these three scholarships:
- Top Seller- $2,500* scholarship
- 2nd Highest Seller- $2,000* scholarship
- 3rd Highest Seller- $1,000* scholarship
*In the event of a tie for first, second or third place, the girls will split the scholarship funds. For example – if two girls tie for second highest seller, each girl will receive a $1,500 scholarship and the third highest scholarship will not be awarded. If two girls tie for third highest seller, each girl will receive a $500 scholarship.
