2012 Cookie Recognitions

While we think the entire recognition structure for this year’s sale is pretty awesome, we’re especially excited to announce these additions  to the lineup!

  • Turn & Burn Trip to Mount Rushmore! Meet in Denver at midnight, hop on a bus to South Dakota, enjoy an action packed day at local landmarks , participate in the closing flag ceremony at Mount Rushmore, hop back on the bus and come back to Denver. Phew! That’s one fun-filled 24 hours!
  • Toshiba Thrive Tablet, stand and wireless keyboard…a modern take to the laptop.
  • xBox Kinect – Controller-free gaming and voice commands. You gotta check this out!

What else is new and exciting in 2012? Cookie Credits!

  • Cookie Credits earned in the 2012 cookie sale won’t expire until Dec. 15, 2013! That gives girls an extra year to use their credits.
  • Also new for 2012, girls may choose to have their credits held at the GSCO service center to be applied towards summer camp. Girls should mark on their Girl Recognition Selection form whether or not they would like their credits  and turn in to your TCM or IGSCM.
  • Cookie Credits will be mailed directly to the girl, rather than to the Service Unit.

    how does one get access to the cookie club to sell online? I asked her troop leader but she didn’t know.

  2. Stephanie Bates says:

    How can someone choose a top seller event if not all the times and dates are set yet?

  3. Kelley says:

    Is the Troop Super Seller Recognition and average of 350 boxes/girl, or is it at least 350 boxes/girl?

  4. Tara says:

    When will the girls receive their patches and recognition choices? Not the cookie credits, but the items they picked from the list. My troop leader doesn’t return any calls or emails, so for all I know she has had them for weeks… It has been a bad experience.

    • Margaret Miller says:

      Hi Tara,
      The patches and recognition items should be arriving from the bakery soon, but have not arrived yet. These items are shipped directly to the service unit cookie manager, who distributes to the troop cookie manager to hand out to the girls.
      I’m sorry you had a negative cookie experience. Please call me to discuss in further detail. 303-607-4840
