SHELTON, Conn. — Edgewell Personal Care Co. and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation (DGLF) is launching the Emerging Artist Contest. The inaugural program encourages students to visit EmergingArtistProject.com to enter an original piece of artwork through August 28, 2023. Artist and author Reyna Noriega is serving as a judge, and the winner will win a one-time $10,000 tuition scholarship and the chance for their design to be featured on Schick Intuition packaging at all Dollar General stores nationwide in 2024.
Through this new contest focused on young emerging artists, Edgewell and its Schick Intuition shave brand aim to elevate their creative expression and encourage these young artists to continue their studies. This program will also support the company’s People First value of ‘giving back to the community’ while also sharing its brand platform with young, diverse artists in keeping with Edgewell’s corporate purpose, values and behaviors.

I am happy to say, this contest does just that. We are thrilled to launch a program that reflects the core of our purpose and values so closely and that will have a meaningful impact on the winner’s future ambitions, and we’re glad to partner with the Dollar General Literacy Foundation in these efforts.”
“The Dollar General Literacy Foundation is excited to partner with Edgewell to create an opportunity for young artists in Dollar General’s hometown communities and highlight creative work on store shelves across the country,” shared Denine Torr, executive director of the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. “We look forward to seeing the submitted artwork of the talented artists.”
