National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend: February 23 – 25 2018. Girl Scout councils across the U.S. participate in National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend 2018 celebrating all the fun, learning, and excitement Girl Scouts have experienced selling cookies for 100 years. National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend will offer girls from GSCCC a chance to show off their cookie-selling skills by participating in booth and door-to-door sales throughout Monterey, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Santa Benito, Santa Cruz, and Ventura Counties.
It’s Bling your Booth time! Have fun decorating your booths. Be sure to display the Girl Scout logo prominently. Research shows that girls sell more when the Girl Scout logo is visible. Be creative with displays. When displaying cookies, more is better- stack ’em high and watch ’em fly!
