LUBBOCK, Texas — Girl Scouts of the Texas Oklahoma Plains will kick off its 2023 Girl Scout Cookie Season on Friday, January 13.

According to a press release, the Girl Scout Cookie Program is the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for girls.

The 2023 Girl Scout Cookie Season runs from January 13 through March 5.

“Girl Scouts gain new experiences through the Cookie Program – not only in learning how to run a business, but in their own ability to hit individual goals they set to utilize cookie proceeds to attend Girl Scout summer camps and travel trips, said Becky Burton, CEO of Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains in the press release. “The effort of Girl Scouts of all ages, whether five-year-old Daisies or 17-year-old Ambassadors, builds their confidence in their own abilities and is always a joy to watch as their faith in themselves grows. I’ve never met a Girl Scout that doesn’t have memories of the cookie program.”

Here’s how you can purchase Girl Scout Cookies this year:

  • If you know a registered Girl Scout, reach out to her to find out how she’s selling cookies.
  • Visit the Girl Scout Cookie Finder to find a booth near you.
