MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Today is a celebration for Girl Scouts across the Badger State.

Saturday, March 13 is the official start of Girl Scout Cookie Season.

Many scouts are trying to navigate ways to safely sell cookies and connect with customers virtually during the pandemic.

“We’re trying to do order forms a little less and do more things online,” said Carly Fahey, a 9th grader from Belleville.

There is a new cookie this year, Toast-Yay, which tastes like French Toast. This year will be the last year for the S’mores cookie.

Governor Evers declared Friday, March 12, as Wisconsin Girl Scouts Advocacy Day. The day also marks the 109th birthday of the Girl Scouts.

In a typical year, troops from across the state would gather at the State Capitol to meet with their lawmakers and learn more about state government. This year, the event is virtual and the girls will meet online with lawmakers and share some of the issues most important to them.

There are an estimated 70,000 active Wisconsin Girl Scouts. 8,000 are part of the Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Badgerland Council.
