Tampa, FL - It's that time of the year again for Girl Scout cookies. 

The famous goodies go on sale Tuesday, from traditional favorites like Thin Mints and Somoas to a few newer names like Thank U Berry Munch. 

The Girl Scout Cookie program is the largest girl-run business in the world.  It gives girls the opportunity to learn more about the world of business while teaching them skills like goal setting, money management, people skills and business ethics. 

"It helps you with projects, you get to help up in your community, you get to make the world a better place, it's just really fun," said 12-year-old Girl Scout Cassie Hiatt. 

In addition to the all American favorites, there is a new benefit this year.

"Everybody who likes our council's Facebook page will be entered into a random drawing to win a year's supply of Girl Scout cookies. So, 365 boxes of cookies," said Jennifer Medeiros, PR and Media Manager for Girl Scouts of West Central Florida.

The contest applies to new 'likes' only and you must like the page during National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend, this Friday, February 7 or Saturday, February 8.

To participate, click here to be entered in a drawing to win a year supply of cookies. 

Each box of cookies is $4 and all proceeds stay in the Tampa Bay market. 

This year's cookie line-up includes: Do-Si-Dos®, Dulce de Leche, Samoas®, Tagalongs®, Thank U Berry Munch™, Thin Mints, Trefoils™ and Savannah Smiles®.

Also be on the lookout for Girl Scout Cookie booths set up around the Tampa Bay area!
