GSME is Celebrating Go-Getter Cookie Entrepreneurs during Maine’s Girl Scout Cookie Weekend!

We're happy to announce that we will be celebrating Maine Girl Scout Cookie Weekend, March 2-4, kicking off a month-long phase of the Girl Scout Cookie Sale, which includes Cookie Booth Sales across Maine. This celebration rings in a new century of fun, learning, and excitement. Selling cookies has powered resources for girls over the past 101 years.

During Girl Scout Cookie season, each amazing young G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ not only sells delicious cookies but also builds life skills, such as goal setting, budgeting, people skills, and business ethics—all essential to 21st century leadership and workforce development. And the more cookies girls sell, the more earnings they have to perform impactful community projects and fund personal enrichment experiences, like camping and traveling.

“The Girl Scout Cookie Sale Program is so much more than just selling a cookie,” said Joanne Crepeau, CEO of Girl Scouts of Maine. “Girls are learning significant life skills, and just as important, the sale from every box of cookies impacts local communities across Maine. Girls decide how they want to invest their funds from their earnings. This could mean anything from purchasing supplies for the homeless, to building awareness for animal safety, to creating multi-cultural connections with a mentorship program with refugee students at local high schools.”

One hundred percent of the net revenue girls earn through cookie sales stays in Maine and funds local Girl Scout council and troop programs. Customers who purchase cookies are making an important investment in their community and supporting fun and formative leadership experiences for girls.

The Girl Scout Cookie Sale Program offers enterprising girls a chance to show off their cookie-selling skills by participating in booth, door-to-door, and digital sales throughout the state. Customers will be able to get their hands on their favorite Girl Scout Cookies, like Thin Mints and Caramel Delights, as well as the popular Girl Scout S’mores! The cookie sale ends March 31.
