With guidance from volunteers like you, Girls Scout Cookie™ entrepreneurs can reach their goals whatever the circumstances, while building skills that last a lifetime! Girls can now set up booths in a virtual space or outdoor location within their network—with options for low-contact and no-contact participation.
Girls can have a successful Girl Scout Cookie Season without leaving home! They’ll enjoy finding ways to make virtual booths creative and unique.
Remember, safety first! As you begin your planning, please make sure you have reviewed Girl Scouts’ Digital Marketing Tips for Cookie Entrepreneurs and Families, as well as Supplemental Safety Tips for Online Marketing.

- Girls should always make the sale and answer customer questions.
- There should be more girls than adults at every booth. Girls are always in the lead.
- Encourage volunteers to share the work. Make sure they know all the safety rules.
- Practice booth etiquette by showing up on time, checking in with the location and thanking the sponsor when the sale is over.
