(Neb)-Girl Scout Cookies Here Again! Listen
CHADRON - The annual Girl Scout cookie sale is underway in Nebraska, running through March 10th. Spokesman Shannon Peterson of the Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska says the cookie program is the biggest fundraiser for the Girl Scouts and its local units around the country.
Peterson says the cookie program teaches the girls to unleash their "Girl Scout Cookie CEO superhero skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest annual financial investment in girls in the United States, and Peterson calls it a "powerful entrepreneurship incubator for the next generation of female leaders.
This year's lineup includes a new gluten-free cookie that Peterson thinks most people won't recognize as gluten-free, the Caramel Chocolate Chip.
Filling out the cookie roster are Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, Girl Scout S'mores, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwich, Shortbread, Thanks-a-Lot, and Lemonades.
