PR Cookies
This year we received over 600 boxes of cookies to use in our PR efforts — thank-you's to delivery station hosts, local media pitches, big community collaborators, etc. We ordered lots of Thin Mints and have fair amounts of Carmel deLites, Shortbreads, Lemonades, PB Patties, PB Sandwiches and the new S'mores Girl Scout Cookie. Also free PR bags and cookie sale flyers are available as well. If you have a specific PR cookies request, please contact us.

Cookie Rally/Kick-Off Patch Program

Cookie Sale Rally Guide
It’s a celebration! This year, Girl Scouts of Virginia Skyline Council celebrates its 55th anniversary. Kick-off your cookie sale season with a Cookie Rally. This activity-packed party combines learning and fun to kick-off the cookie season the right way. We’ve pulled out all the stops to put together a kick-off that helps girls build skills, set goals and drive sales.

This can be done within your troop or service unit. Follow the Rally Guide to set-up your activities. Your rally does not have to include all of the activities in this guide, but should include some fun stuff, especially incorporating the 55th anniversary logo here and there.

  • Attend as a girl & earn a patch.
  • Attend as a troop (5 girls or more with 80% attendance) & receive choice of $25 Disney Dollars or $25 Council Dollars.
  • Attend as a troop (5 girls or more with 60% attendance) & receive choice of $10 Disney Dollars or $10 Council Dollars.

The Cookie Rally event organizer should submit entries with photo (show reference to 55th anniversary logo), girl names & troop number for patches, and troop info with number attending and contacts for the troop dollars by February 28, 2018 to
