The Great Cookie Cache Patch Program 2021
During Cookie Season, Girl Scouts could earn a one-of-a-kind patch by hunting the Golden Cookie and building their financial literacy and business skills.
Golden Cookie medallions were hidden throughout Southern Illinois in each Service Unit. Girls also promoted their cookie biz around town, completed financial literacy courses and built marketing skills on the Digital Cookie platform. We all had so much fun!

Great Cookie Cache! Girls who complete the requirements by March 15,
2021 will earn the patch and also be entered into a drawing! be sure

Complete at least four requirements:
Locate at least one Golden Cookie, take a selfie with it and upload to http://bit.ly/CookieCacheEntry. You will also be entered in a drawing! Please DO NOT take the Golden Cookie! Leave it at the secret location to give your fellow Girl Scouts a chance to hunt it down.
Color, personalize and distribute at least three Cookie Coloring Sheets to your neighbors or local establishments to promote your cookie business. This requirement can be done in-person or digitally. Be sure to practice social distancing and do not include a girl's personal contact information.
