Girl Scouts, we have breaking news and wanted you to be the first to know!
This year, as we do every 3-4 years, we met with both Girl Scout Cookie bakers to evaluate the best partner for Girl Scouts of Western Ohio’s 2024 Cookie Program. After a thorough vetting process, one baker won the unanimous vote of the selection committee. We believe this baker will deliver positive cookie experiences for our girls, families, and volunteers in the years ahead.
Hear the news straight from our Product Program team and our CEO, Aimée Sproles!
Check out all the cookies online, then watch for opportunities to meet ABC Bakers and sample their cookie varieties at upcoming events, including the BIG Expo South on June 10 in Cincinnati and the BIG Expo North on September 30 in Toledo!
At the end of the 2023 Cookie Program — and before we even met with the bakers — we crunched the cookie numbers every which way and determined that rising costs will mean new pricing (and proceeds!) for the 2024 Cookie Program.
To ensure our troops are able to finance their adventures and council is there to support them, we have changed the price from $5 to $6 for our core varieties, and from $6 to $7 for the gluten-free cookie.
This price change means more proceeds for troops! We do not yet have a new proceeds scale, but watch for more details in our fall communications and cookie resources.
We know you may have questions! Visit this FAQ page for the answers we know so far.
Your Product Program team will be working all summer long to determine proceeds and rewards, refresh all the resources for girls and volunteers, and develop new trainings for our Troop Cookie Managers and Service Unit Cookie Coordinators. Volunteers, watch for invitations this fall to get all the latest info!
These changes bring new excitement to the 2024 Cookie Program, but the most exciting part is knowing that when she participates in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, she gains lifelong skills, fun rewards, and the proceeds to fuel her next adventure!
