Girl Scouts of the USA today announced the launch of “Digital Cookie,” a new website and mobile application that allows Girl Scouts to sell cookies digitally for the first time in the program’s history. The program gives scouts valuable 21st century entrepreneurial skills.
While Digital Cookie represents an exciting evolution of the iconic Girl Scout cookie program, the virtual sales platform that launches in the 2014–2015 cookie season is phase one of what will become a much broader and more robust program.
Girl Scouts of Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho is not participating in the initial program phase due to the different cookie price points as Idaho charges sales tax on Girl Scout cookies.
Girl Scouts of Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho will still be participating in traditional booth and door-to-door sales of Girl Scout cookies in the coming cookie season. Cookie pre-orders will begin Feb. 6, 2015 and booth sales run March 16 through April 12.
Girl Scouts of Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho will evaluate phase one of the Digital Cookie platform at the end of the current cookie season and make a decision about its implementation in its council for the 2015–16 cookie season.
