She’s bold, brave and ready to make her mark.
Last year, go-getting Girl Scout entrepreneurs ran the largest girl-led business in the world. In our region, girls sold 4.4 million boxes of Cookies to finance their activities, like travel, camping and community service projects. The Girl Scout Cookie program helped girls gain the skills needed to run a business, teaching them how to set goals, market their product and confidently interact with customers. It’s no wonder so many successful businesswomen say they got their start selling Girl Scout Cookies.

Cookies sold by girls.
Cookies were donated to local Hometown Heroes and military service members through the USO Metropolitan Washington.
Girl Scout S’mores™ was added to the lineup, becoming the most popular new cookie launched in 100 years, comprising eight percent of our total cookie sale. Not bad for a new cookie!
Over 10,000 Girl Scouts participated in the Fall Product Sale Program, selling magazines, nuts and candy to friends and family. This Council-sponsored program gives troops a head start to earning money to finance their Girl Scout adventures.
2017 was the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts selling cookies.
