Troop PGA Rewards

Troop PGA rewards are based on the troop average for number of girls selling in the troop. A girl is considered as selling in Smart Cookies when she has been awarded at least one package of cookies.

Headband: Each girl selling will receive a bee print headband.

Bee socks: Each girl selling will receive a pair of bee socks.

Hoodie: Each girl selling and two adults (one for Juliette troops) will receive a hoodie. Additional hoodies will be available for purchase for additional volunteers, only for troops that achieve the 420 PGA level. Hoodies will be ordered through a link emailed to qualifying troop cookie managers in early April.

Receiving Cookie Rewards

Cookie rewards, including Cookie Credits, are sent to your service unit cookie manager, who then hands them out to your troop, and then your troop will give them out to you (and your sister Girl Scouts). Girl and troop rewards will be shipped in mid-May.

A few select rewards, at the highest levels, are sent directly to girls. If you reach one of these levels, we will mail you instructions in April—and congrats on a job well done!

Cookie Credits are a special type of reward that help you further your Girl Scout experience. Going to camp this summer? Or working on a Higher Award project? Cookie Credits can help you pay for lots of exciting Girl Scout activities. New for 2021-Cookie Credits are going electronic! Girls that select Cookie Credits will receive an email featuring a code, valued for the total number of Cookie Credits earned as selected by the girl. Girls will use this code to redeem towards the options below:

  • Council-approved day camp
  • Official service unit encampments
  • Girl Scouts River Valleys’ resident camps
  • Any Girl Scouts River Valleys’ program event
  • Girl Scout Shop and Camp Trading Post purchases
  • GSUSA membership dues and GSUSA lifetime membership
  • GSUSA destinations
  • Council-approved Girl Scout Junior, Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador extended troop trips
  • Completed Girl Scout Bronze Award projects
  • Approved and completed Girl Scout Silver and Girl Scout Gold Award projects

Girls should make decisions as to how they will use their Cookie Credits—whether for their own use or for the benefit of the troop.

Expiration:

Typically, Cookie Credits expire mid-September in the year following the Cookie Program season during which they were earned. Cookie Credits being used for extended troop trips and lifetime membership have an extended expiration date for two more years.

2021 Cookie Credits will expire on September 15, 2022.

Options for Senior & Ambassador Troops

Options for Senior & Ambassador Troops:

Senior and Ambassador troops (and Senior/Ambassador Juliettes) have the choice to opt out of receiving rewards and Cookie Credits to instead earn an additional $.05 per package sold. Girls may choose to do this, because they prefer the extra proceeds to help their entire troop complete activities instead of receiving individual rewards. If your Senior or Ambassador troop wishes to do this, you must contact us before the end of the cookie sale.

This decision must be made by a troop as a whole. If your Senior or Ambassador troop chooses the opt out, the girls will still receive all patches earned, in addition to the troop receiving an additional $.05 per package sold.
