If you’ve already ordered your favorite Girl Scout Cookies, they’re here and delivery has begun!
If you missed the first round or would like more, don’t worry. From now until March 14, girls throughout central and southern Missouri, southeast Kansas and northeast Oklahoma will
continue to sell Girl Scout cookies through direct sales, including door-to-door and at booths outside local merchants. “The direct sales component of the Girl Scout Cookie Program is an important one for girls,” says Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland CEO Jennifer M. Orban, “they get hands-on experience in customer service, accounting and teamwork.” Customers also benefit from the instant gratification of walking away with their favorite Girl Scout cookies!
This year, there are eight cookie varieties available: Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwich, Shortbread, Thanks-A-Lot, Lemonades and Daisy Go Rounds (five 100-calorie packages in each box). Cookies are $4 per box and all proceeds support leadership program activities, financial assistance, volunteer training and other resources for area Girl Scouts. Find a Girl Scout cookie booth near you by using the booth locator tool at www.girlscoutsmoheartland.org.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls leadership and teamwork skills that they will carry with them throughout their lives. Together, they set goals, work to achieve them, and budget their proceeds for troop activities and community service projects.

About the Girl Scout Leadership Experience
Girl Scouting is about building strong leaders. Founded in 1912, Girl Scouting is the premier
leadership development organization for girls ages 5-17 in America. With 3.7 million members
worldwide, Girl Scouts has a strong history of encouraging girls to become strong, confident
young women. The Girl Scout Leadership Development Experience encourages girls to engage
not just in traditional activities and service projects, but also in the process of leadership.
Through hands-on opportunities, girls learn-by-doing in cooperative group settings and
empowering individual explorations. Girl Scouting helps girls discover a strong sense of self,
connect with others in a changing world, and take action to help make the world a better place.
