Girl Scouts kick off 2020 cookie season

Girl Scout Cookies can only be purchased from a registered Girl Scout. To find Girl Scouts selling cookies near you, visit www.girlscoutcookies.org or use the official Girl Scout Cookie Finder app, free on iOS and Android devices.

Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains and Girl Scouts of the USA have launched the 2020 Girl Scout Cookie season, where Girl Scouts across the U.S. become entrepreneurs and earn money to power their own leadership opportunities and adventures.

This season, GSUSA announces two sweet new ways to celebrate young female leaders: refreshed packaging reflecting the amazing experiences cookie earnings make possible for girls, and a new lemon cookie available in select areas.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls about entrepreneurship as they have fun learning essential skills like money management, public speaking, and decision making.

According to a news release, nine in 10 Girl Scouts say the cookie program has built their entrepreneurship skills and their interest in pursuing entrepreneurship as a career path. Each and every purchase also stays local to power experiences and leadership opportunities for girls in communities across the U.S.

The new Girl Scout Cookie in New Hampshire and Vermont is Lemon-Ups, a crispy lemon cookie baked with messages inspired by Girl Scout entrepreneurs. “I am a go-getter” and “I am an innovator” are among the eight phrases that bring the experience of Girl Scouting to life.

The new cookie joins the national 2020 lineup, which also includes favorites such as Thin Mints, Samoas, and Trefoils. Lemon-Ups are available in select council markets.
