Girl Scout Cookie season kicks off in Vermont

Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains kicked off the 2024 Girl Scout Cookie season in Vermont and New Hampshire with a cookie rally on Saturday, Jan. 6, as they prepared for the annual Girl Scout Cookie program.

"These Girl Scouts are unboxing their futures as young female entrepreneurs through the world's largest entrepreneurial program for girls," organizers said in a news release. "The rally featured games and other activities to introduce the newest Girl Scouts to the cookie program, teaching them how to safely take cookie orders and deliver them to their customers, familiarizing them with the different flavors, and imparting valuable business skills."

This year's theme for the sale is "Unbox the Future," which "aims to remove social barriers that often keep girls boxed in." Nearly 700,000 Girl Scouts participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program.

"All proceeds from cookie sales stay with local councils and troops to power Girl Scouts' amazing experiences year-round," say organizers.

Girl Scouts in grades K–12 can start their journey to fun, friendship, and new experiences by joining at any point in the year at Adults can sign up there to volunteer as well.

Girl Scout Cookie season is recognized nationally from January through April, but local timing varies. Girl Scouts are now taking cookie orders. This season, cookie lovers can enjoy the full assortment of cookies, including fan favorites such as Thin Mints, Samoas, and Do-si-dos.

Orders can be placed by talking to a local Girl Scout, contacting a Girl Scout through the Cookie Finder at, texting "Cookies" to 59618, or visiting to sign up for notifications as soon as a local troop begins selling.
