FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 11, 2022
RENO, NV—On Saturday, January 8, Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada kicked off the 2022 Girl Scout Cookie Seasonwith cookie rallies in Reno, Elko, Bishop, and Carson Valley. At these rallies, sponsored by U.S. Bank, Girl Scouts participated in interactive activity booths where they learned the five essential financial literacy skills: Money Management, Goal Setting, Decision Making, Business Ethics, and People Skills.
Girl Scouts are now selling the new Adventurefuls, an indulgent brownie-inspired cookie with caramel-flavored crème and a hint of sea salt, and an incredible taste of adventure in every bite. Adventurefuls joins the whole portfolio of iconic Girl Scout Cookies including favorites like Thin Mints®, Caramel deLites®, and Peanut Butter Patties®.
This season, Girl Scouts are again selling cookies in creative, socially distant, and contact-free ways to keep themselves and their customers safe during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Many Girl Scouts will run outdoor cookie booths that follow local, state, and CDC guidelines while still getting everyone’s favorite cookies to their customers. If you know a Girl Scout, ask how she’s selling cookies via the Smart Cookie online platform for direct shipment or local delivery. And beginning February 18, consumers can enter their zip code to purchase cookies online from a local troop for direct shipment or donation to local causes.
Every Girl Scout Cookie purchase fuels local Girl Scouts’ adventures throughout the year: exploring what interests them, discovering their passions, and taking action on issues they care about. Whether they’re using their STEM skills to solve a problem, changing a law to help their community, having a courageous outdoor experience, or starting an innovative nonprofit, Girl Scouts build a better future for themselves and the world. And through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, including by earning new Cookie Business badges, girls get a taste of being entrepreneurs and learn important online and offline business skills that set them up for success in life.
Ashlee Tang, a Washoe County high school senior in her final season of selling Girl Scout Cookies, said, “Through the cookie program, I’ve learned to be more outspoken and more confident, as well as learning most of the money management and goal setting skills that I now have.”
