  • A new look on this year’s Girl Scout cookie packages highlights what girls learn while participating in the world’s largest girl-led business.
     
    More than 32,000 girls begin selling door-to-door on Feb. 2 and will continue until Sunday, March 17.
     
    If you missed the girls going door-to-door you can still purchase cookies by calling troop leader Kimberly Ecker at 794-3542. Last year the girl scout troop has booths at the Dairy Queen, Randy’s Family Drug and Schutz Family Foods.
     
    As the country’s top Girl Scout Cookie sellers for two years in a row, River Valleys’ girls will hone their business skills during the remaining four week sale that ends March 17.
     
    The Girl Scout Cookie Program is a comprehensive business course centered on five specific and valuable life skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. This year’s new packaging highlights these skills and the badges girls earn by participating and learning.
     
    In addition to earning troop proceeds, each girl has the opportunity to earn individual rewards related to her personal success. Rewards range from necklaces and half-off camp coupons to bikes and laptops.
