Posted on: June 17th, 2019

Calling All Dedicated Orange & Seminole County Female Educators: Enter Orange Appeal’s 9th Annual Teacher Back-to- Class Makeover Contest! 

Are YOU a hardworking educator in need of pampering? Or do you know one? One lucky teacher will win a 3-day prize package!

Last year’s winner,
Jill Piontowski

The winner meets with branding and image consultant Lisa Maile of Lisa Maile Seminars & Coaching at their home in July for a “Star in Your Own Closet” customized video consultation to create a winning wardrobe formula (accent on “Dress Your Best for LE$$”), then enjoys personal shopping for new back-to-school clothes with stylist Lisa at The Mall at Millenia, courtesy of the Mall with a $500 gift card.

On Monday, July 29, you’ll receive a total beauty makeover, including a private makeup lesson with Leslie Christin, president of CARA Cosmetics and Studio CARA, followed by complete personalized hair services with stylist Ana Yebba of Porte Noire Salon, including instruction on how to style your hair each morning. Later that day, you’ll enjoy your own personal photo shoot with award-winning photographer Sharon Lundberg to appear in a 2-page article in the September/October issue of Orange Appeal! The winner also receives a lifetime subscription to Orange Appeal.

As an extra bonus, public radio station 90.7 WMFE will award a carload of school supplies to the teacher selected, so her students benefit as well! The station’s Young Friends group runs the year-round ContinuED School Supply Drive, in partnership with A Gift For Teaching.
