Previous Congressional App Challenge Winners

2022 Winner – William Rownd

The 2022 winner is William Rownd, a 10th grader at Cabot High School. William created his app titled Rx Adviser during his free time outside of a classroom setting. Rx Adviser is a medication reminder app using revolutionary technology that allows for ease of use along with drug-to-drug interaction warnings. He developed this app with two audiences in mind: the growing population of senior citizens and others who take numerous medications on a regular basis and have an increased risk of drug interaction. It was built using JavaScript and the react native framework for iOS visual studio code. You can watch his Rx Adviser demonstration video here.
