Garden City, NY October 2, 2012 – This Girl Scout Cookie season brings with it a brand new face, one that features pictures of girls from the Girl Scouts of Nassau County. New boxes of popular Cookies, including Thin Mints, Tagalongs, Samoas, Savannah Smiles, Thank You Berry Munch and Thanks-A-Lot, will be revealed in AdWeek on October 4th.
The new Cookie boxes will feature the five skills learned through the Girl Scout Cookie® Program, as well as highlights of badges, quotes from girls, the Gold Awards and additional information about Girl Scouting.
“Through the redesign of our Girl Scout Cookie boxes we hope to engage and inspire customers to support and develop a deeper relationship with the Girl Scouts,” said Donna Ceravolo, Executive Director of the Girl Scouts of Nassau County, Inc. “We are honored that some of our girls were chosen to be the new face of the Girl Scout Cookie!
The new Cookie boxes are part of the “This is What a Girl Can Do” Cookie campaign that showcases the skills and confidence girls gain through the Cookie program. The Girl Scout Cookie® Program is a key part to the Girl Scouting experience. Much more than a way to raise money, the Girl Scout Cookie® Program is a hands-on, leadership and entrepreneurial opportunity which teach girls goal setting, decision making, money management, business ethics, and people skills.
I am excited to be on the Thin Mint Cookie box,” said Maribel, Girl Scouts of Nassau County member. “Selling Cookies is a great way for me and other girls to learn real-life skills that will last a lifetime.”
The Girl Scout Cookie® Program begins in Nassau County in January 2013. However, sales have begun across the country so look for these smiling faces.
