National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend (NCSCW) is celebrating its third year — and that means this weekend is the National Girl Scout Cookie Competition! The much-anticipated event welcomes local restaurants to partner with the Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia in a competition to see who can create the tastiest dishes using Girl Scout Cookies. This year Helms College’s own Edgar’s Bistro will be participating.
Restaurants across Georgia will offer their own unique Girl Scout Cookie dishes. There are two categories of competition: one for full-service restaurants and one for specialty eateries. Local culinary experts will judge the dishes and local diners will cast votes for their favorite treats at www.gshg.org. Winners will be determined by a combination of People’s Choice votes and judges scores. The winning restaurant and eatery will each be presented with a National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend Culinary Competition trophy and win the ultimate cookie bragging rights! Edgar’s Grille in Augusta, located at our Augusta campus of Helms College, has been named a winner for the past two years!
The event is taking place February 24th-26th and we will be participating this Friday, February 24th at Edgar’s Bistro, located directly beside the Helms College Macon campus, The Polly Long Denton School of Hospitality, during lunch and dinner hours. We invite you to come out and sample the dishes we have prepared in honor of the event and vote online for your favorite.
Hours to participate in this event are:
- During lunch hours at Edgar’s Bistro from 11:00am – 2:00pm on Friday 2/24
- During dinner hours at Edgar’s Bistro from 6:00pm – 9:00pm on Friday 2/24
One hundred percent of the net revenue raised through Girl Scout Cookie sales stays with the local council and its troops, so customers who purchase Girl Scout Cookies are not only getting a delicious treat—they are also making an important investment in their local communities. To add even more excitement to this year’s event, Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia will celebrate the impact of their iconic financial literacy program and the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts selling cookies.
We invite you to visit Edgar’s Bistro for your chance to vote on this beneficial and fun event! Edgar’s is located at Helms College, 5171 Eisenhower Pkwy, Macon, GA, 31206. We hope to see you there!
