How to Enter

My Cookie Story

Every year, Girl Scouts across the country take the lead, using cookie proceeds to do incredible things to better themselves and their communities. Girl Scouts, families, and volunteers can submit success stories for a chance to be featured in our Connections newsletter or on our social media pages. Was the troop’s booth a work of art? How did a Girl Scout use the five skills she learned during the cookie program? Did the troop use cookie proceeds to make the world a better place? Each girl who shares a story will receive the I Shared My Story! patch.

Cookie Program Lifetime Achievement

Since 2015, Girl Scouts San Diego has recognized girls for having 1,000, 2,500, and 5,000 recorded packages. Girls receive a certificate of recognition when they reach each milestone as a cookie professional*. Show the certificate at our stores to purchase the Lifetime Achievement patch ($2) and rockers ($1.10). Ask your service unit cookie coordinator to find out your current lifetime total.

* GSSD exclusive program; recorded packages with another council cannot be included.

CEO letters of recommendation

Girls in high school are eligible to request a personalized letter of recommendation from Girl Scouts San Diego’s CEO! These letters are a great way to build their resume when completing their college or scholarship applications. Girls must have earned the Participation patch every year they have been a member and submit a brag sheet.
