Jill Piontkowski Wins Teacher Makeover Contest


90.7 WMFE partners up to offer lucky teacher a carload of school supplies

ORLANDO — Jill Piontkowski is the winner of the 8th annual Back-to-Class MakeOver Contest for teachers! 90.7 WMFE partnered with Lisa Maile Seminars & Coaching and Orange Appeal Magazine on the contest, giving a deserving teacher a free makeover and a carload of school supplies.

Piontkowski is a sixth grade life science teacher at Orlando Science Schools, a STEM school in College Park.

Here’s what Jill won:

It’s a 3-day prize package, with a multi-step makeover that covers hair, clothing, makeup and overall presentation.

Day 1, Jill met with branding and image consultant Lisa Maile of Lisa Maile Seminars & Coaching at her home for a “Star in Your Own Closet” customized video consultation to create a winning wardrobe formula (accent on “Dress Your Best for LE$$”).

Day 2, Jill enjoyed personal shopping for new back-to-school clothes with stylist Lisa at The Mall at Millenia, courtesy of the Mall and your $500 The Mall at Millenia gift card.

Day 3, Jill received a total beauty makeover, starting with complete personalized hair services with stylist Ana Yebba of Salon Muse, including instruction on how to style your hair each morning, followed by a private makeup lesson with Leslie Christin, president of CARA Cosmetics and Studio CARA. Jill enjoyed her own personal photoshoot with award-winning photographer Sharon Lundberg to appear in a 2-page feature in the the September/October Orange Appeal Magazine, and receiving a lifetime Orange Appeal subscription.

And for the first time, 90.7 WMFE awarded a carload of school supplies to Jill, 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. Learn more HERE.
