Cookie Incentive Plans
The Cookie Program is about setting and reaching goals. The Troop Cookie Manager (TCM) is a girl’s resource for helping the troop reach its goal and assisting each girl in her personal goals. Each incentive that a girl earns is a testament to her own determination and the strong support of her TCM. There are several options for incentives—girls have to make the choice that best suits their goals.
This year's cumulative incentive plan features owl-themed items and include high ticket items such as an iPod Touch and an iTunes Gift Certificate. All of the cumulative items are shown on the Cookie Order Form.
Older Girl Travel Plan
The Older Girl Travel Plan is a non-cumulative incentive that can only be earned by registered Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassador Girl Scouts. This incentive gives older girls the option to earn money to be used toward troop-based programs, trips or Destinations® offered by GSUSA. Click here for more information. The deadline for choosing this incentive for the 2012 Cookie Program is January 1st, 2012.
Adventure Credit Plan
Adventure Credits may be used for purchases in GSEP Shops (girls and parents only; leaders are not permitted to use girls’ credits), GSEP Summer Camp Trading Posts, GSEP Programs and Events, Gold and Silver Award expenses or GSEP Summer Camp and Neighborhood Day Camp registraion. Girls will still earn patches, but will receive credits instead of incentives. These credits cannot be combined with any other plan and will expire October 31, 2012. Credits may not be converted back to cash.
The Older Girl Option
The Older Girl Option for Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors, provides an additional $.05 per box profit in lieu of incentives. The troop must reach a per girl average of 136 boxes. If this option is chosen, it applies to the entire troop and must be a troop decision.
