Way to go G.I.R.L.s!

9,297 go-getters participated in this year's program - that's an average of 204 boxes of cookies sold per girl!

2,300+ Celebration

Congratulations to the G.I.R.L.s who sold 2,300 or more boxes of cookies. We celebrated their success at Universal Studios. They went behind the scenes at Universal's Islands of Adventure during a 3 hour tour and got an insider's look at how the park operates.  After their tour, the girls enjoyed a lunch with GSWCF CEO Jessica Muroff at Toothsome's Chocolate Emporium. Girls were then treated to a full day of adventure at both Universal Studios theme parks.

Patch Program Wrap Up
Madison

In addition to managing their cookie businesses, our G.I.R.L.s also participated in patch programs to expand their entrepreneural skills.

New this year was the Walk About patch program where, during Walk About Week, girls decorated a wagon, family car, or van and visited places where they connected with people in their neighborhood, parks, beaches, and even sporting events. Girls like Madison (pictured, left) took their wagons around their communities, earning the new Walk About Patch. 1,022 Girls earned this patch.

 

 

We offered four other patch programs this year. You can see a breakdown of girls who earned the patches below:
