NEW! Girl Scout Cookie Restaurant Weekend (GSCRW) | March 15-17
Enjoy your favorite Girl Scout cookies like never before! Restaurants and Senior/Ambassador girls in all regional areas will join forces to create a dessert inspired by your favorite Girl Scout Cookie. Stop by any participating restaurant during the weekend to taste a cookie-inspired dessert or other item. This cookie entrepreneurship program provides an opportunity for girls in 9th-12th grade to solicit restaurants within their service unit or with whom they have a personal connection to participate in the program. Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts interested in participating, visit the Cookie Sellers page for forms and details.
Sign up at Booth Sales to win cookies for a year (no purchase necessary)! Our CEO, Dawn Prasifka, will draw the winner April 20, 2019. The troop that submits the winner will receive a gift card for a pizza or ice cream party! Troops, note that all entries must be submitted to the product program department by March 30.

Girl Scouts Give Back Week | April 29-May 3, 2019
With Girl Scouts Give Back, you can support two causes at the same time: a girl-led cookie business and various worthy organizations across the state. Through Girl Scouts Give Back, customers can choose to purchase cookies and have them donated. Girl Scouts give back by donating cookies to the brave men and women of the military, local food banks, hospitals and other worthy causes during Girl Scouts Give Back Week.
Council Gift of Caring (CGOC) – These boxes are virtual cookies. A troop will allocate them to the girls in eBudde under CGOC but a troop will never physically have the cookies. Girl Scouts - Diamonds will donate these cookies during Girl Scouts Give Back Week to various organizations across the state. This option allows the troop to collect cookie donations for Girl Scouts Give Back Week without having to manage extra cookie inventory. No pickup of additional cookies or tracking of physical packages is required. The top selling troop and girl from each regional area will be invited to accompany the CEO on Girl Scouts Give Back Week cookie deliveries and receive a Girl Scouts Give Back patch. Troops are encouraged to have a donation display to collect funds at booths.
Girl Scout Cookie Contests for Troops and Girls
Bling Your Booth Contest | April 5, 2019
No boring booths allowed – Bling Your Booth! Troops are encouraged to celebrate Girl Scouts Give Back (GSGB) and create a magical place to promote the GSGB program, and create a magical place to sell. Some ideas may include creating a measurement tool to show your customers how many donations you have received or a game to get your customers on board! Email your Bling Your Booth photos and troop number by Friday, April 5. The top three will be posted to the Girl Scouts – Diamonds Facebook page and voted on through “likes”. The winning troop will receive a Bling Your Booth patch for each girl and a gift card for a pizza or ice cream party for the troop.
Win Booth Patches for Your Service Unit | April 1, 2019
Inputting booth information into eBudde is vital for the success of the booth sale phase. Booth sale information populates to www.girlscoutsdiamonds.org where customers can enter their zip codes and find booths near them. Girl Scouts - Diamonds received tens of thousands of booth sale hits via the Booth Locator in 2018. If your booths are not in the cookie finder app, your customers are going somewhere else! For every booth sale a service unit enters in the booth sale spreadsheet for product program staff to import, the service unit will receive one entry into a regional drawing for free booth sale patches for all girls in the service unit. The booth sales drawing will take place on April 1. Booth import spreadsheets will be emailed to Service Unit Product Managers starting January 7.
