Special Information

 Troops hosting a cookie booth during the 2012 Cookie Program Activity will have the opportunity to earn special troop cookie booth bonus recognition items. Cookie booths are a fun and easy way for girls to improve their Cookie Program Activity business skills and sell more cookies. Troop Cookie Managers have details on the program and bonus awards. Cookie Booths open February 20.

·         The service unit will earn a $0.01 per package incentive to be used for programming if we increase our 2011 cookie sales by 10 % over last year. Last year we sold 105,637 packages which means our 2012 goal (with the 10% increase) is 116,200 packages. – an average increase of 10 boxes per girl. This would result in $1,116.20 for us to spend on the girls! We know our girls are awesome seller who can do this by setting both troop and personal goals and working to achieve them!
