What: AIA Kansas City, WiD-KC and Girls Scouts of NE Kansas & NW Missouri are excited to bring Cookie Construction once again to area Girl Scouts.

Check out last years completed builds.
Space is limited to 100 Girl Scouts and spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. See registration information below.
