Congressional App Challenge

 

Congressman Quigley is excited to announce Ava Hollis, a freshman at York High School, as the winner of the 2017 Congressional App Challenge for Illinois' Fifth Congressional District. Ava's app, React, aims to help connect people to nearby EpiPens, inhalers, and other medical supplies and services when first aid can be administered before paramedics are able to respond.
