Financial Literacy Badge: Meet My Customers 


Cookie season starts this month. Do you know where to find customers? When you find them, what will you say? Do you know how much a box of cookies cost and how to make change if a customer gives you $5 or $15? Now's the time to brush up on your cookie business skills by earning your Meet My Customers badge.


The Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting can help you earn your financial literacy badge by following these 5 steps:

  1. Find out where your customers are
  2. Talk to some customers
  3. Practice handling money and making change
  4. Role-play good customer relations
  5. Thank your customers!

When you have earned this badge, you'll know how to find customers and be comfortable selling to them. Get started on your Meet My Customers badge today - refer to your Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting for complete instructions and activities.

2012 is the Year of the Girl
In a move designed to focus national attention on girls and the issues they face, Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) has declared 2012 the Year of the Girl: a celebration of girls, recognition of their leadership potential, and a commitment to creating a coalition of like-minded organizations and individuals in support of balanced leadership in the workplace and in communities across the country.


During the Year of the Girl, Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada will mix celebrations of the organization's 100 years as the preeminent leadership experience for girls with efforts to create a sense of urgency around girls' issues.


Here are some of the 100th anniversary celebrations you and your Daisy Girl Scout can look forward to:

  • March 10 - 100th Anniversary Hoover Dam Bridging
  • March 20 - Alumnae/Volunteer Event - Ladies Night with the Las Vegas Wranglers
  • May 18 - Girl Scout Night with the Las Vegas 51's
  • December 2012 - Girl Scout Night with the Las Vegas Wranglers
