The 2013 Girl Scout Cookie Program runs February 15-March 24, with more than 19,000 Girl Scouts across the state asking for your support through the purchase of Girl Scout Cookies.

This year, the Girl Scouts welcome a new cookie to the line-up: the Mango Crème.

These crunchy vanilla and coconut cookies with a mango-flavored crème filling have all the nutrient benefits of eating cranberries, pomegranates, oranges, grapes, and strawberries. This exciting innovation brings “better for you” benefits to Girl Scouts and is the first cookie of its kind.

2013 also brings new package designs for the first time since 1999. The iconic Girl Scout cookie package showcases the five lifelong financial literacy and entrepreneurship skills that the Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.

Annual cookie sales supports troop activities and provides necessary funding for Girl Scouts throughout Nebraska and enables them to reach girls who would not otherwise have the resources to participate in Girl Scouting.
