Girl Scouts­–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council Announces Top Cookie Season Troops and Sellers; Local Girl Scouts Total Over 3.4 Million Cookies Sold in 2024 Cookie Season

(PHOENIX – June 13, 2024) — Girl Scouts­–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council (GSACPC) is celebrating the entrepreneurial success of Girl Scouts across central and northern Arizona after thousands of individuals came together during the 2024 Girl Scout Cookie Season from Jan. 15 to Feb. 25 to sell more than 3.4 million boxes of tasty Girl Scout Cookies. Through their efforts this season, Girl Scouts developed key business skills and raised funds that stay 100 percent local to support a variety of educational and exciting Girl Scout programs, experiences, and community projects.

Here is how the cookie numbers stacked up in 2024:

  • 7,817 girls in central and northern Arizona sold 3,413,035 boxes of cookies.
  • The per girl average was 436 boxes each, up from 409 boxes each in 2023.
  • The top cookie seller, Avery Vo of Troop 4847 in Surprise, sold 8,932 packages of cookies to beat her 2023 sales of 7,866 packages.
  • The top troop, Troop 558, in Phoenix/Glendale, sold 60,549 packages of cookies.
  • 1,041,395 packages were sold online through its Digital Cookie program.
  • The most popular cookie sold was Girl Scout Thin Mints.

“This Girl Scout Cookie Season was truly one to remember as girls took their entrepreneurial skills to new heights and found innovative ways to sell and integrate digital sales into their strategy, reaching the community more than ever with over 1 million boxes sold digitally,” said Mary Mitchell, co-CEO of GSACPC. “This cookie season was so much sweeter with the support from the community and the contributions of our Girl Scout volunteers and parents that power the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world.”

Mitchell also notes the five essential skills that Girl Scouts attain through the Girl Scout Cookie Program: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.

Girl Scouts who participate in the cookie program help to enhance the experiences of their Girl Scout sisters now and beyond by generating proceeds that support a number of GSACPC programs, community outreach projects and enrichment including:

  • Spark adventure by attending Girl Scout Summer Camp, while also maintaining the four camp facilities and outdoor programming year-round.
  • Girls and their individual troops earn proceeds for troop activities and community service projects.
  • Providing STEM, outdoor, life-skills, and entrepreneurial programs for Girl Scouts to participate in in central and northern Arizona, including providing access to programs for girls residing in the Navajo Nation and Hopi Lands.
  • Financial assistance to cover membership, uniforms, and camperships for any family needing extra support.
  • Supporting girls’ passions, take-action project, and pursuit of the Girl Scout High Awards through service projects that make an impact on our community.

“With the help of local business leaders, girls were able to put guidance into action firsthand at our Girl Scout Cookie Fast Pitch to help craft their cookie sales pitches,” said Christina Spicer, co-CEO of GSACPC. “We also welcomed the return of the Bring Home the Cookie 5K in partnership with State Forty Eight Foundation, which saw a new record high of more than 1,000 girls, families and organizations come out to support entrepreneurship, Girl Scouting, and more. Now in its third year, the event is bigger than ever and a true community celebration of girls’ achievements.”

The unwavering support of the community helped make this year’s Girl Scout Cookie Season a success by empowering Girl Scouts to fuel their entrepreneurial spirit, building confident leaders of tomorrow.
