MADISON (WKOW) -- Girl Scouts of Wisconsin, Badgerland are selling cookies as part of the Girl Scout Cookie Program.
The program is the largest girl run business in the world and teaches girls essential skills to succeed personally and professionally, including goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
On Tuesday, Marci Henderson and Jessica Riedel stopped by Wake Up Wisconsin to talk about the program.
Jessica is a 9th grader at Sauk Prairie Middle School and last year she sold over one thousand boxes of cookie and paid her way to several camps. This year she says her goal is to sell more than 4,000 boxes.
A Girl Scout cookie purchase supports girls as they do great things in their communities and encourages them to Dream, Design, Do! – which is the theme of the 2016 program.
Badgerland Girl Scouts will sell cookies through March 20. Girls will be selling cookies around their neighborhoods and holding community booth sales throughout the sale so you can purchase them while you’re out and about.
Cookies are $4 per box and all the favorites are back: Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Lemonades, Thanks-a-Lots, Shortbreads and Cranberry Citrus Crisps.
