Greetings! 

 

Get ready for
Girl Scout Cookies!


We are excited to announce that the Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska council will now be using a Direct Sale format for the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Beginning January 13, 2012, girls will have packages of cookies IN HAND to sell across the state. This means that girls will learn five essential skills--goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, business ethics--AND they will be actively selling during the entire program!

 

For all the details click here.

 

If you are participating in the 2012 Cookie Program and you have not sent us your intent form, please do so now.
