CUMMING, Ga. — Giddy Girl Scouts held their heads high while leading a press conference of their own.

On Feb. 7, Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta launched National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend with a press conference at One Peachtree Pointe, 1545 Peachtree Street NE, to let the girls share what cookie selling is really about.

The Scouts hosted the press conference themselves and shared the five skills they learn while selling cookies – goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics.

As "CEOs of their own cookie sale business," several girls spoke about their experiences like Junior Scout of Forsyth County, Erin Keough.

Also, Melissa Brandon, director of product sales at Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta, shared how the cookie program has an impact on the local community and how it can prepare girls to become future leaders.

Afterward, attendees enjoyed the test tasting portion of the conference with milk and cookies.

Cookie sales end on March 17, and Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta reminded everyone the sale not only satisfies the annual sweet tooth but also helps girls realize their full potential of becoming a strong, confident and resourceful citizen.
