Permission form for Cookie Sellers
Council Cookie Social Media Guidelines
  • Posting about where or when a specific girl is selling cookies is not allowed at our council. You can post Troop information on your personal social media. Example of what is not allowed: “My daughter Jane will be selling at Fred Meyers from 2-3 p.m.” Instead try posting: “Troop 123 is selling cookies at Fred Meyers from 2-3 p.m.”
  • You cannot post Digital Cookie links on public pages or re-sale sites. Examples of public forums are, Craigslist, eBay or Facebook Marketplace. This includes commenting the link on another page’s post. It is ok to post a Digital Cookie link on your personal social media page.
  • Under  Volunteer > Volunteer Essentials > Product Program > Your Role, Selling Cookies Online, it states, ”Girls may only post about their participation on Digital Cookie in a way that allows them to restrict access to family and friends, such as on Facebook.”  This would mean a personal Facebook page, not a Facebook group with strangers like the ones mentioned above. The same rules apply to parents.
  • Use smart judgement. If you are posting information in a private group but that group has hundreds or thousands of people in it, then it may not be wise to post there as you can risk girl and volunteer safety.
  • Try posting something generic. For example: “Interested in buying Girl Scout Cookies? Send me a message and I can get you in contact.”

If you see something concerning online, feel free to take a screenshot and send the information to Council. Please do not intervene.
