Girl Scouts throughout Walworth County kicked off their annual Girl Scout Cookie sales last week.

The Badger Council, which includes Walworth County, held a cookie kickoff a week ago, and sales will continue through Jan. 27.

All proceeds, after paying the baker, stays within Badger Council.

A portion of the money stays at the council level to support all types of activities.

In addition, 55 cents from every box sold stays within the troop where girls decide how to spend it, further encouraging goal setting and leadership abilities.

According to a news release, last year's revenue was used to support camps, science and technology programs, leadership training and special fellowships for girls who would not otherwise be able to participate in the may opportunities offered by Girl Scouts of Badger Council.

Cookies are available directly from Scouts who will be selling door-to-door. More information on ordering is available from Badger Council at (608) 362-8922 or (800) 362-3226.

Girls Scouts of Badger Council serves more than 5,500 girls in over 400 troops and 2,000 adults in four counties including Walworth, Rock, Green and northern Winnebago County in Illinois.
