2017 Fall Product Program
This program—which began October 2—is a great way for girls to learn important life skills, set goals, earn money for their Girl Scout activities early in the troop year and have FUN! This year’s themes are "Be Fearless” and "Unleash the Hero Inside," and the program mascot is the fearless Super Cat! Participation is easy! A girl can invite family and friends to support her Girl Scout troop in person, online or both!
With each purchase of nuts, candy, magazines—and new this year: water bottles, tumblers and organic vegetables—a girl earns 15-17% of each dollar sold for her troop and awesome recognitions for herself! Great opportunity for a girl to find her very own super power!
