Winnetonka teacher, Kerri Cassity, encouraged her Advanced Graphic Arts Class to take a challenge

Claycomo, Mo – January 4, 2016 – The Village of Claycomo (MO) announced today their new logo for the Village. The logo selected was a result of a Village-wide contest which invited residents, local businesses, and students from the Graphic Design class at Winnetonka High School (North Kansas City School District) to submit designs. The purpose of the Logo Contest was to identify a logo which would help re-establish an image for the Village and be used as a branding opportunity to capture what the Village has to offer to residents, businesses and visitors.

Community voting took place for six (6) design finalists over an eight (8) week period. The winning design was announced at the Board of Trustees meeting on December 14, 2015 and was submitted by the students from Winnetonka High School Graphic Design class taught by Ms. Kerri Cassity. All finalists were recognized for their contributions and creativity during the board meeting. The students, and Ms. Cassity, were also recognized during a ceremony at the Board meeting. The students and Ms. Cassity, were also recognized during a ceremony at Winnetonka High School on December 18, 2015 by Board of Trustee member Jeff Carter and Clerk Dennis King. Winnetonka administrators and North Kansas City School District Central Office personnel were in attendance as well.

A unique feature of the Village is the majority of the streets are named after famous poets which the quill captures in the winning design while the two wheels represent the primary industry of the Village.
