Cookie Clip Contest

Have your Girl Scouts showcase their creativity and get ready for the Cookie Program by creating a short video.

  • What do you learn from selling cookies?
  • What is the best way to approach a customer?

    Is there a specific permission slip or form available for obtaining parent permission for girls appearing in video? Thanks!

    • Girl Scouts River Valleys says

      Hi Sue, the Family Cookie Responsibility Form covers permission for girls to be in photos, videos, audio for Girl Scout publicity purposes. Your troop should have already collected a signed form from the parent/guardian of each girl. It’s also a good idea to let parents know that their Girl Scout will be participating in the Cookie Clip contest as well.

    • Girl Scouts River Valleys says

      Hi Danielle, The due date is actually February 27 and we’ve updated the page to reflect this. We will be announcing the winner the week of March 10 via a blog post and a callout in The Smart Cookie.

    Wow! We are so honored! We take cookies very seriously around here! I was at my meeting Monday evening just pulling up our cookie clip video on my I Pad to show some of the girls who hadn’t seen it yet when I saw your e-mail! The Cheers!! It was deafening! Thank you so much! We had fun making the video- the girls have adapted the ‘Horseland’ song from the popular cartoon to ‘HorseCamp’ in honor of Camp Elk River!! Yay! Brownie Troop 16218 is so proud!
