The Girl Scout Cookie Program provides girls with their first taste of entrepreneurship, financial skills, and earned success. Now, in celebration of the largest girl-led business in the world, Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore is excited to announce TopCookie, a new cookie dessert competition that will raise support to give every girl increased access to the four areas that form the foundation of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience - science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); outdoors; life skills, and entrepreneurship.

This delicious event will feature desserts created by local chefs using Girl Scouts' iconic cookies, including Do-Si-Dos, Tagalongs, Samoas, Trefoils, Thin Mints, and a new flavor - Lemon Ups.
