Girl Scout Cookie Selling Safety Rules
Girls should wear Girl Scout
identification--their pin with their uniform, sash, or T-shirt.
Girls must sell with a buddy.
Girls should be familiar with the neighborhoods
in which they sell. Use safe pedestrian practices.
An adult must accompany a Brownie or Junior Girl
Scout when girls are taking
orders and selling cookies. Girls 11-17 must be accompanied by an adult when selling door to door. Daisy Girl Scouts do not sell cookies.
Girls should sell only during daylight hours.
Girls should never enter a customer's home
unless accompanied by an adult.
Two adults must be present, at all times, when
Girl Scouts operate a booth in a
store, mall, or other public place.
Girls should never give out their names,
addresses, or telephone numbers to customers. Only the group leader's telephone
number or other adult's telephone number is given out to customers.
Always have a plan for safeguarding money collected. Money may be given to the accompanying or supervising adults so
girls are not walking around with large amounts of cash.
Never sell cookies on the Internet.
