Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska is about to enter the next century of Girl Scouts selling cookies. The Girl Scout Cookie Program not only teaches girls essential entrepreneurial skills but also powers amazing leadership experiences.
After last year’s 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts selling cookies, troops across Nebraska will kick off this season Feb. 2 with the return of Girl Scout S’mores, the most popular new flavor in the history of the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Cookie fans help support the next generation of entrepreneurs and invest in their communities.
Local Troop 50456 Daisy's and Brownies are practicing their skills and will soon be knocking on your doors to sell girl scout cookies.
They include Tatum Edholm, Grier Edholm, Autumn Yonke, Emma Risor, Raegan Ketelsen, Dalee Sazama, Parker Stelling, Emma Kumm, Natalie Johnson, Marrich Brockberg, and Zelenka Rojas. Not pictured are Miranda, Jenna, and Isabel Loseke and Baila Loomis.
“All across Nebraska, Girl Scouts are doing amazing things made possible by the sale of every package of Girl Scout Cookies,” said Fran Marshall, Chief Executive Officer of Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska. “The Girl Scout Cookie Program allows each Girl Scout to discover her interests, take the lead in her community and change the world.”
That’s because all of the net revenue—100 percent of it—stays in Nebraska. Girls and their troops use their cookie proceeds for community service projects; leadership development; camping and outdoor experiences; Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs; and so much more.
Plus, for the second year, Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska is giving away a new car, thanks to a generous partnership with Baxter Toyota La Vista. Cookie customers and the public can ask Girl Scouts for a secret code and enter it at a special link online for a chance to win the 2018 Girl Scout Cookie Car. The contest runs from Feb. 2 to March 9, 2018.
The 2018 Girl Scout Cookie line-up features S’mores, Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Patties, Shortbread, Peanut Butter Sandwich, Thanks-a- Lot, Lemonades (all still $4.00 per package) and gluten-free Trios ($5.00 per package). Cookies will be sold through March 4.
