Girl Scouts of West Central Florida

Why Girl Scout Cookies?

Buying Girl Scout Cookies is about more than just handing over money for a box. It's about the skills a girl gains from interacting directly with you. It's about the experience of running her own cookie business and working with others. And it's why we encourage you to buy your cookies from a Girl Scout—the Cookie Professional!—and not her parents.

Your purchase means you get tasty cookies—and a girl learns skills that last a lifetime.

Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls develop five essential skills. Click here to learn more about the five essential skills listed below:

  • Goal setting
  • Decision making
  • Money management
  • People skills
  • Business ethics







That’s the number of boxes of cookies girls of Girl Scouts of West Central Florida sold in 2013. That’s more than $1.2 million in proceeds going directly to the girls! Girl Scout Junior Gloria from Troop 1318 was our top seller, selling 5,002 boxes (our highest ever achieved!), and 98 girls sold more than 1,000 boxes of cookies!
