Cookie All Stars


The registration site will open at the beginning on February 3rd, 2020.

Please Note: The registration site will close April 30th.  Guiders are encouraged to register your Mint cookie sales now.  This will give you the guider the opportunity to familiarize yourself with the site and will give National time to work on any issues that may occur.


We are aware that there has been some concern that the Cookie All Stars base reward has been changed this year to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the program. While we have seen both positive and negative feedback regarding the commemorative bracelet please be advised of the following –

  • The change will only affect this year’s CAS and we will return to the individual badges for the 2020/2021 guiding year.
  • The group reward badge is still being awarded so everyone still the opportunity to earn a badge.
  • The bracelet is a waxed cotton string with a custom silver-plated charm in order to minimize concerns regarding a possible allergic reaction
  • If the recipient does not wish to wear the bracelet it can easily be sewn on the camp blanket/poncho etc.

 

The Cookie Dough envelopes reference the charm bracelet for the spring campaign. Unfortunately, due to printing schedules and delivery times this was not possible for the Mint campaign.

Registration

Cookie All Stars registration site will open for all units in February 2020 after cookie ordering period is finished.

Trex, Trip Unit, Lones and other Individual Cases


The Cookie All Stars registration site can provide Trex and Trip unit rosters. Unit Guiders are also able to record sales by Lones and transitional Members.  The Instructions as always can be found on the Member Zone in the Cookie All Stars section.

 

Please make sure that all Guiders in your province are familiar with these rules. Lones or girls from another Units helping with the Unit sales should have their sales recorded by each Unit Guider.in the section called Other Girl helpers/Lones, located below the Unit roster.


Guider needs to:
  1. Enter Girl Helper iMIS number and click Add Girl helper button to be able to enter number of cookies sold both individually and as part of the group for each campaign.
  2. Check for accuracy and click the Update Other Girl Helper/Lones button. (this button saves info for girl helpers or Lones only). The Save & Submit button still must be clicked to submit the whole roster.
  3. All individual cookie sales are combined and recorded by the girl’s iMIS number after campaign closes.

 

If a Girl Helper in the Unit sells cookies or is a member of a Special Ops./Trip Unit, her total sales will be combined and transferred to the home Unit – providing the home Unit has registered for Cookie All Stars.



IMPORTANT:

 

  1. Please make sure that ALL special Ops (Trip) Units in your Province are registered in the iMIS database. This will help avoid delays in registration and eliminate manual adjustments.

     

  2. Units without a Contact Guider in the iMIS database will not be able to register for Cookie All Stars. If you require a list of Units in your province that still do not have a Contact Guider assigned, please contact your provincial iMIS administrator or let me know and I will provide one for you as applicable.

Unit Group Sales



Please remind your Guiders that cookies sold during the group event cannot be added to girls’ individual sales.

    Since it appears that there is still a misunderstanding in the field regarding both types of sales here are a couple of scenarios:

Scenario1:

Unit orders # of cases and a Unit Guider gives the cookies to each girl (one; two or more cases) to take home and sell – this is an individual sale

Scenario 2:

Unit Guider takes all or some girls to sell the ordered cookies as a group either door to door, district blitz etc. - this is a Group sale event.

Scenario 3:

As in Scenario 1, but if girls bring to a Unit group sale event the cookies that they were given to take home, then these cookies can be counted as either individual or group sales but not both.

Scenario 4:

Let’s say that Unit has 12 girls in total. Some girls, for example 6 of them, set a high goal for themselves and requested many cases, for example 40 cases each.  These 6 girls then get together and organize their own group sales event. They sell their cookies (240 cases) door to door, in front of the stores etc. – this is an individual sale.

Hope this clarifies. As always, all questions regarding Cookie All Stars should be forwarded to cookieallstars@girlguides.ca.

Social Media

We will continue our successful promotional campaign via social media with Facebook/Instagram advertisements. Our aim is to have as many Units as possible taking part in the Cookie Days in Canada weekend in whatever way is easiest for them. Let’s work together to promote this initiative and ensure its ongoing success.
