Girl Scout Cookie Selling Safety Rules

  1. Girls should wear Girl Scout identification--their pin with their uniform, sash, or T-shirt.

  2. Girls must sell with a buddy.

  3. Girls should be familiar with the neighborhoods in which they sell. Use safe pedestrian practices.

  4. 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.

  5. Girls should sell only during daylight hours.

  6. Girls should never enter a customer's home unless accompanied by an adult.

  7. Two adults must be present, at all times, when Girl Scouts operate a booth in a
    store, mall, or other public place.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Never sell cookies on the Internet.


Girl Scout Cookie Selling Tips:

  1. Introduce yourself as a Girl Scout, state that you are selling cookies, and tell what you and your sister Girl Scouts will do with the proceeds earned from the cookie sale.

  2. Set a daily goal based on how much time you have for selling cookies.

  3. Know all about each cookie and make recommendations.

  4. Rehearse your sales presentation.

  5. Share your troop/group goals with customers.

  6. Tell people Girl Scout cookies freeze well, and remind them that the cookies are only available once a year.

  7. Suggest buying Girl Scout Cookies as gifts and for parties.

  8. Ask if people would be interested in purchasing a "Gift of Caring" box of cookies that will be donated to a local charity. Your troop can select one or more charities to donate to.
