For Cookie Sellers

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is so much fun and the cookies are delicious, but the best part is the opportunity for Girl Scouts to build new skills and fund their dreams and adventures.

Girl Scout troops can pick up extra online sales and cookie donations through GSEMA’s Cookie Connector. The Cookie Connector does exactly as it’s name implies: connects customers who do not have a connection to a Girl Scout with cookies.

Submit your Smart Cookies troop link today, and get promoted in the Cookie Connector.

Council Organized Booth Sales

GSEMA organizes booth sales, called Council-Organized Booth Sales (COBS), to increase opportunities for troops and Girl Scouts to meet their sales goals. Due to their popularity, COBS are available by lottery. COBS include MBTA stops, mall kiosks, and other miscellaneous locations.

There are two lotteries for COBS: one in December for January COBS and one in January for February and March COBS. MBTA COBS and Mall COBS will be included in each lottery. TCC must submit a Primary MBTA COBS Contact Form prior to the lottery in order to be entered to win a MBTA lottery.
