Meet the top Girl Scout Cookie seller: More than 100,000 boxes!

Girl Scouts joined The Today Show to celebrate 100 years of Girl Scouts selling cookies. 

You won't believe what a cookie can do! See the full video here, below!

Fifteen-year-old Girl Scout Katie Francis knows a thing or two about the art of the sell. Since joining her Oklahoma City troupe seven years ago, she's smashed all previous cookie selling records, selling over 100,100 boxes. It's an achievement, she told CNN, that's the result of a lot of hard work, not to mention some pretty savvy entrepreneurial chops.

Your voice counts! Girl Scout Voices Count survey coming in April.




At Girl Scouts, we care about your experience, good or bad, and we want to hear from you!

In April, Girl Scouts of the USA will be conducting a national survey with girls, parents/guardians and troop volunteers called Girl Scout Voices Count to find out what’s working, and what’s not, in Girl Scouts. We will use your feedback to improve our services and programs.

The surveys open on April 3rd. Save the date and be sure to check your email for the invitation to participate. As a Thank You, everyone who completes the survey will be entered into a raffle to win one of twenty $50 gift cards! We can’t wait for you to make your voice count!

Got questions? For more information, email GSVoicesCount@girlscouts.org.

Bye Bye Winter and Hello Spring!

Spring has sprung! Today is March 20, the first day of Spring, and one of two days a year when day and night are just about equal lengths across the globe!

The March equinox marks the beginning of spring – meaning that our half of Earth is slowly tilting towards the sun, giving us longer days and more sunlight, and moving us out of winter and into spring and summer.

 















With the warmer weather and longer daylight hours comes the perfect opportunity to spend more time outdoors, (i.e. fun activities in the sun, camp!)

Whether it's Frog Watch Camp or Kayaking, click here to find an activity that is right for you!

Happy Spring!
