It’s officially Girl Scout cookie season

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The wait is finally over.

It is the 107th year of the Girl Scouts annual nationwide cookie sale. It starts today January 9, and lasts through March 31.

This year’s program is “Unbox the Future” which aims to remove social barriers that often keeps youth boxed in, according to Girl Scouts of NYPENN (GSNYPENN).

There are around 700,000 Girl Scouts nationally that participate in the cookie program.

“When our bold, goal-setting Girl Scouts sell cookies, they’re doing so much more than what we see at face value. They’re entrepreneurial youth leaders creating a more equitable future for themselves and our world. We very much appreciate our community’s support during the annual cookie program,” says GSNYPENN CEO Julie Dale.

This year it is $6 a box.
