2014 COOKIE SEASON
2014 Cookie Program Theme
This year’s theme of “What Can a Girl Do? A World of Good – Her Own Way” encourages girls to use their cookie money to lead Take Action Projects that have MORE IMPACT than ever before. With your guidance and the power of Girl Scout Cookies, girls can make positive changes in the world around them. A girl can speak for those less fortunate, foster changes where they’re needed and have a true impact close to home, and even on the other side of the world. This Cookie Season, girls are encouraged to set high goals and use some cookie money to make the world a better place. They will grow in ways you never dreamed possible.
Important 2014 Dates
Girl Scouts will begin taking cookie orders on February 1, 2014 and will end their initial pre-order sales February 17, 2014. Girls may begin delivering cookies March 22 and will sell at various booth locations throughout our council beginning Saturday, March 22nd and ending on April 13th.

Largest Girl-Led Business in the Country
When you buy Girl Scout cookies, girls decide where the money goes. Our girls have big hearts and big imaginations, and Girl Scout cookies help bring out the confidence in a girl to turn her dreams into a reality. Through participation in the Girl Scout Cookie Program girls develop five essential skills including goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
Proceeds Remain in Local Community
Cookies are $4.00 per box upon delivery, and all proceeds remain locally to fund both council and troop activities, maintain camp properties, fund recruitment and training of adult volunteers, and support council-wide initiatives.
Council Gift of Caring
Many Girl Scout troops participate in the Council Gift of Caring, a community service project in which girls encourage customers to buy cookies for donation to a non-profit organization selected by the Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming. In addition to supporting local non-profits and service organizations like fire and police departments, in 2013 the Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming donated 2,191 boxes of Thin Mints to cancer centers across the two states. Thank you for helping girls achieve great things!
