Gearing up for their annual Girl Scout Cookie Program, Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois (GSSI) will hold their annual Cookie College on December 14, 2013 at Kaskaskia College in Centralia, Illinois.

At GSSI’s Cookie College, Girl Scout Brownies and Girl Scout Juniors will receive guidance on the skills needed for their very own cookie business.  Girl Scout Cadettes through Girl Scout Ambassadors will work on developing, marketing and selling their very own cookie product.  In addition, all girls will hear from area businesswomen who will share their secrets to business success!

Any Girl Scouts (Girl Scout Brownies through Girl Scout Ambassadors) who would like to participate in Cookie College should contact GSSI at 800.345.6858.  Space is limited, and the deadline to register is November 7.  For more information on Cookie College, including program fee and badges earned, please visit GSSI’s online calendar at or contact Katie Grayling at 800.345.6858.
