2020 Cookie Program Distribution
We know girls and families are eager to receive their well-earned Girl Scout Cookie Program recognitions. In accordance with public health and safety guidance given in March 2020, distribution of physical recognitions has been prohibited. Given recent announcements from the governors of Oregon and Washington, GSOSW has re-evaluated this prohibition and developed Guidelines for Girl Scout Cookie Program Reward Distribution. Please contact your service unit product manager or troop leader for more information on your service unit's distribution plans.
When you sell cookies, you learn lots of great skills like goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics - skills that will help you all your life.
In addition to these great skills, you earn recognitions - like patches, electronics, and exciting experiences. PLUS, you earn Cookie Credit as you sell cookies - money that you can use to pay for camp, events, membership or items in the Girl Scout shop!
Super Seller Recognition Levels
Please note that all recognition experiences are subject to minimums. Timeframes and inclusions may be adjusted due to participation and seasonal availability. If a trip cannot be provided due to not meeting enrollment minimums, girls will be able to choose the related alternate recognitions offered at that level.
Girls who earn and elect an experience-related recognition will be contacted by email by March 13 with specific details for the elected experience. At that time families review the details and confirm their interest in participating. If the girl no longer elects to participate in the experience, they may choose from the alternate corresponding physical recognition OR the related Adventure Card program credits offered.
Transportation is not included for any activity-related recognitions.
Girls will need to inform troop product managers of their recognition election prior to March 10. Troops must enter this information into eBudde, and the Product Program Department uses that information to contact families.

This event is for one Girl Scout, and one adult chaperone. No additional family members or siblings can be added to the room, attend the banquet, or receive breakfast vouchers. If you would like to bring other family members you are welcome to reserve a room for them on their own.
Girl Scouts and their adult chaperone will receive a one night stay in a shared room, and two each: park entry wristband, dinner banquet, breakfast vouchers. Male caregivers will not be able to share a room with their Girl Scout. Those male chaperones will be paired in a room and their Girl Scout will share a room with another Girl Scout and their female chaperone.
Families that have two Girl Scouts that earned the reward will be able to share a room. No other siblings are allowed. Please make other arrangements for tagalongs prior to the event.
Email surveys requesting important confirmation details will be sent out to caregivers by March 13. Please keep an eye out for those emails and respond as soon as possible as we have a very quick turnaround to get rooming lists to the lodge.
Girls can tap in to their musical side with a beautiful Ukulele that will be shipped directly to the Girl Scout.
Ashland Theater Experience - June 20-21, 2020
Peter and the Starcatcher June 20 at 8 p.m. Angus Bowmer Theater
“Everything ends—and so our story begins.”
Pirates, mermaids, swashbuckling fights and a giant ticking crocodile. We know the destination—Neverland—but Peter and the Starcatcher is the story of how we got there. In this music-filled prequel to Peter Pan, Molly, a brave young girl, leads a ragtag group of orphans on a quest to save the world from the villainous pirate Black Stache. Lavina Jadhwani directs this hilarious, physical and imaginative celebration of OSF’s multi-talented acting company. With an appeal that spans generations, Peter and the Starcatcher, which won five Tony Awards during its Broadway debut, embraces the child in each of us with a depth and beauty that is far from childish.
This experience is for one Girl Scout and one adult chaperone. Girl Scouts that choose this reward will receive theater tickets for two, a backstage experience, shared lodging in Ashland, Oregon, dinner with other Girl Scout super sellers, and breakfast at the hotel.
