Unleash Your Cookie Entrepreneur Super Powers During the 2019 Cookie Pro Contest!

Every year, thousands of G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ superstars across the country become cookie CEOs, running their cookie booths like watch-out-world-here-we-come pros. That’s why the 2019 Cookie Pro™ contest is offering an exciting opportunity for girls to get even more creative with their cookie sale. How? Girl Scouts of the USA is teaming up with the bold and brave DC Super Hero Girls™ to treat 24 grand-prize winners to a trip to sunny California—wow! What awaits is an incredible behind-the-scenes VIP adventure at Warner Bros. Studios. It’s the Cookie Entrepreneur Experience of a lifetime, and it could be hers this summer!

Our young G.I.R.L. entrepreneurs will tell their own cookie story of heroic skill and strength by (1) answering a set of questions and (2) creating a mini graphic novel—fun! A mini graphic novel is a story told through pictures and words set up in a series of panels or sections. Girls can download a handy template with our pro tips on how to get started making their very own!

When you’re ready to start brainstorming how you’ll tell your inspiring cookie story, ask yourself these questions:
  • What did you/your troop learn from last year's cookie sale? What do you hope to learn from this year's cookie sale? 
  • What makes selling Girl Scout Cookies fun, unique, and beneficial to your community?
  • How did you/your troop use your cookie earnings, or what do you plan to use them for?
  • What innovative selling techniques did you/your troop incorporate to rock your cookie sale? What techniques do you hope to use this year?
  • How did you or will you unleash your G.I.R.L. potential to manage your cookie sale with the dedication and passion of a real-life super hero?

Considering 200 million Girl Scout Cookie packages are distributed each year across the country, the opportunities to tell unique stories are endless! So if you’re a master of the cookie sale, mark your calendar for January 2, 2019, when the Cookie Pro contest officially starts. Also be sure to bookmark the Cooke Pro web page so you can easily submit your entry.
