Back by popular demand! We are excited to welcome back another cookie season filled with outstanding cookie booths, fabulous photo voting and great prizes!


What is Bling Your Booth?

Bling Your Booth is a contest where troops that are participating in a community booth sale can decorate their booth/table by adding signage, lights and all out bling. Anything to showcase your Girl Scout Cookie Business to customers.


What's the theme this year?

We want you to be as creative as possible! This year's theme is "Cookie Pros SHINE!” The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world. Show us and all those wonderful cookie customers how this program prepares girls to lead, learn, succeed and shine. In addition, showcasing the 5 skills; decision making, goal setting, money management, people skills and business ethics is always a great idea.

Tell your troop’s Cookie Pro story by theming what you love about being a Girl Scout – camping, arts, STEM and more!


How does the contest work?

All you have to do is decorate your booth, participate in a booth sale, photograph your troop at the booth and submit your photo by the weekly deadline. Submission period opens two days before the deadline.

To submit your photo, simply watch for contest announcements on our Facebook page, click the links we share and follow the prompts to upload your photo and entry details.

Once voting opens, you can tell everyone to go vote for your booth! A troop can enter multiple weeks, however once they place 1st during the weekly contest, they cannot enter another week. The four 1st place weekly winners will be entered in the Grand Champion Round.
