The Provincial Cookie Committee has brainstormed a number of ideas to help increase our cookie sales for the 2021 and future cookie campaigns!

Cookie Crusher Campaign

$75 Amazon Gift Card for the top seller in each branch (Sparks, Brownies, Guides, Pathfinders, and Rangers) province wide. This will happen for both the fall and spring campaigns. In case of a tie, there will be a random draw to determine the winner. Contact Guiders are asked to complete the contest entry form to submit their top seller per branch. Enter the contest!

$75 Social Media Campaign (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, etc) for units and members who post using the #ggcnlcookies. There will be a $75 Amazon Gift Card for a randomly selected youth member who posts a picture using this hashtag for each campaign. There will also be a $75 pizza party prize for a randomly selected unit who posts a unit picture using this hashtag for each campaign. Please ensure all members in photos and submissions have their Image Release consent (IR.1) recorded in iMIS. For photos where members are wearing masks, all girls and women must be wearing masks that cover the nose and be maintaining a minimum of two meters (six feet) of physical distance. Photos will also need to be submitted using the Cookie Crusher photo contest entry form to be entered into the draw. Enter the contest!

For the fall 2021 Classic cookie campaign, the contest entry deadline is December 1, 2021.

Cookie History

In 1927, a Girl Guide leader in Regina baked and boxed up cookies for her girls as a simple way to raise money for uniforms and camping equipment. Little did she know that she was starting one of Canada’s greatest traditions — Girl Guide cookies!
Funds raised through cookie sales support girls and women in Guiding by:

  • Helping us provide diverse and exciting programs and activities
  • Allowing girls the chance to discover new interests, learn valuable leadership skills and making lasting friendships
  • Assist girls and leaders with attending camps and events
  • Providing training and support for leaders
