Girl Scouts Cookie Captain Patch Illustrated (2)

Cookie Business Challenge
Girl Scouts can be a Cookie Entrepreneur and Captain by participating in the Cookie Business Challenge!
What is the Challenge? Girl Scouts are encouraged to visit businesses and ask them to purchase a case (12 packages) or more of cookies or make a Gift of Caring donation purchase of 12 packages or more. These can be sold during Initial Order phase or with cookies in hand during Booth phase of the Cookie Program. When the cookies are delivered by the Girl Scout, we encourage a picture be taken.
What does a Girl Scout earn? If a girl sells a case or more to three (3) or more businesses, she will earn the Cookie Captain patch. This patch is not calculated through eBudde™ and will be sent separately to Girl Scouts who earn.
What does the Business receive? Any business that purchases a case (12+ packages) of cookies from a GSNI Girl Scout will receive a window cling thanking them for supporting Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois and the Girl Scout Cookie Program.
How to receive patch and recognize business(es)? For girls to receive their patch and to ensure businesses are recognized appropriately, the Girl Scout/parent must complete the Cookie Business Challenge Submission Form by Monday, March 27.
