Cookie Entrepreneur Pins

In January, we are highlighting the Cookie Entrepreneur pins. Girl Scouts of Alaska's Cookie Season starts January 7th! The Cookie Entrepreneur pins are for Girl Scouts who are selling cookies this season.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program has long taught girls how to run a business via in-person booths, door-to-door activity, and the Digital Cookie® platform online. The proceeds from each and every purchase stay local with the troop and its council to power Girl Scouts’ essential leadership programming. Many girls use their cookie earnings to fund visits to Girl Scouts of Alaska summer camps, trips, projects, and more.

STEM and Outdoor Challenges

In the past, Girl Scouts of Alaska has created challenges for girls to explore the outdoors through outdoor activity, observing wildlife, and experiencing the natural wonders of Alaska.

If you have not already completed these challenges, we are bringing them back! This is a great opportunity for girls and their families to explore the outdoors together safely.

We now have a new STEM Challenge patch, for all girls to work on. Activities for this patch are designed for girls to discover and build curiosity independently or with their families.
