PORTLAND, Ore. — While many of us are still reeling from an influx of holiday treats, local Girl Scout chapters are preparing to roll out the next volley — the iconic cookie boxes.

The 2020 "Girl Scout Cookie season" begins Saturday, January 4 for chapters in Oregon and southwest Washington, according to a release from the organization. Scouts can begin taking orders from customers for delivery in mid-February.

Meanwhile, Girl Scouts will be out selling cookies at booths in front of local retailers between February 14 and March 8.

"Girl Scouts will sell cookies door-to-door, at booth sales, and via the Digital Cookie® platform, an innovative and educational web-based platform that helps girls run and manage their Girl Scout Cookie businesses online," the Girls Scouts said.

According to the organization, 100 percent of the net revenue brought in through cookie sales remains within the local region to continue funding Girl Scout programs.

"I am inspired by the life skills that are being developed in the Cookie program,” says Victoria Foreman, Director of Product Program for Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington. “Girls are developing a strong sense of self by participating, learning skills to succeed, and problem solve to manage setbacks as they build their Cookie businesses.”

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest entrepreneurial training program for girls in the world, according to the organization. Girl Scouts learn goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics through the program.
