The contest, which took place earlier this year, was open to all AO patients.Kari Clauss, Marketing Coordinator with AO, facilitated the contest and oversaw the design committee. “We had a hard time choosing a final winner because we received so many great designs and ideas,” said Kari. “We chose Kate’s because it incorporated components of our logo and represented the mission and culture of AO.”Kate, a senior at Lincoln-Way East, is an aspiring artist and will be studying art when she attends college next fall.In addition to having her art featured on the official Associated Orthodontists t-shirt, Kate received a $100 Visa gift card and was given the first edition of the shirt at a special red carpet presentation on November 16 at AO’s Frankfort office.Associated Orthodontists has five convenient locations in Joliet, Plainfield, Morris, Frankfort and Bourbonnais.
