Local News

On February 22-24, Girl Scouts in the Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana council and nationwide will participate in National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend 2019, celebrating the impactful entrepreneurial program that has sparked the success of millions of women. The Girl Scout Cookie Program, the largest annual investment in girls in the United States, powers amazing experiences for girls as they learn invaluable entrepreneurial skills and make the world a better place.

National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend, which is an annual event, encourages consumers to support the female leaders and change-makers of today and tomorrow. While just 17% of startups are founded by women, the cookie program equips girls with the skills and attributes they need, such as persistence, confidence and healthy risk-taking, to become business founders and leaders in the future.  

All the proceeds fund troop projects and experiences, such as outdoor adventure and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). And many Girl Scouts invest their earnings back into their communities, which means that consumers are not just purchasing delicious cookiesthey’re also supporting the betterment of their communities and a bright future for girls. 

Cookies cost $4 a box in the GSNI-M council. The sale continues through March 17.
