YARMOUTH, Mass. — Cookies, cookies, and more cookies.
A 7-year-old Girl Scout from Cape Cod was recently honored as the top cookie seller for 2023 in Eastern Massachusetts, unloading nearly 4,000 boxes of sweet treats in recent months.
Yarmouth Daisy Girl Scout Emma H. sold 3,668 packages of Girl Scout Cookies during the program that ran from early December to early March, according to a spokesperson for the Girls Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts.
At the beginning of the Girl Scout Cookie season, Emma set a goal to be the top cookie seller in eastern Massachusetts and earn all the fun prizes. To achieve her goal, she worked tirelessly selling Girl Scouts Cookies door-to-door, through booth sales (her favorite spot was Peterson’s in Yarmouthport) and by advertising on her family’s car.
“I love being out in the community and selling Girl Scout Cookies,” Emma said. “I am so excited to participate in all the fun events Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts has planned for me including speaking at Canobie Lake Park and being CEO for the Day in August.”
This year, 14,586 Girl Scouts in eastern Massachusetts participated in the iconic Girl Scout Cookie program selling over 2.2 million packages of Girl Scout Cookies. Over 700 Girl Scouts sold over 500 packages or more of Girl Scout Cookies.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches Girl Scouts about entrepreneurship as they have fun learning essential skills like money management, public speaking, and decision-making, which set them up for a lifetime of success.
