Digital Cookie 2.0 is Coming to Southern Illinois

For just the second year in history, Girl Scouts can sell cookies online!  Along with the five essential skills that Girl Scout Product Programs develop (goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics), girls will learn valuable lessons about online marketing and ecommerce through the Digital Cookie 2.0 platform.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is still girl-led!  Through Digital Cookie, along with traditional order taking and booth sales, girls initiate the sale with customers. On the Digital Cookie platform, girls personalize their own cookie website and share a link with customers through e-mail.   Customers can have cookies delivered to their house or even make a donation to GSSI's Gift of Caring campaign, which sends Girl Scout Cookies to current and veteran American military members. 

What's New in Digital Cookie 2.0?
The latest release of Digital Cookie is a more robust, hands-on, and entertaining learning experience. With an enhanced cookie website, fun quizzes, games, videos, and other activities, girls learn about marketing, budgeting, resource allocation, and other business skills on their way to cookie success. Girls can set their cookie goals, track their progress, manage orders and inventory, learn Internet safety skills, and more—all while they earn age-specific Cookie Business badges and explore ways to help others by investing their earnings back into their communities.

GSSI Girl Scouts can sell cookies through the Digital Cookie platform through March 13. To find a Girl Scout in your area, call 800.345.6858 or click here
