Update on Cookie Pro 2020
Over the last three years, the Girl Scout Cookie Program® has provided a platform for young entrepreneurs nationwide to apply their learned skills and experiences through the Cookie Pro™ contest. We’re so grateful to all the inspiring girls who entered this year’s contest and showcased their unique cookie business smarts for a shot at the grand prize: a trip to Orlando including VIP access to G.I.R.L. 2020.
Given the impact of COVID-19, Girl Scouts made the tough, but necessary, decision to cancel G.I.R.L. 2020. As a result, the Cookie Pro 2020 experience that was supposed to happen during G.I.R.L. 2020 cannot take place, and we have canceled this year’s contest.
We made this decision with the health and safety of all members of the Girl Scout Movement at the forefront. As we monitored public health experts’ recommendations and forecasts, it became clear that Girl Scouts could not hold the in-person G.I.R.L. 2020 experience in October because we can’t host a large-scale event and guarantee participants’ health and safety. We understand the disappointment this may cause the many hardworking cookie pros who entered the contest, and we thank all of them for their determination, innovation, and business savvy this cookie season.
