2015 Elevator Pitch Winner Gets Noticed by Apple:

"The music app — not only won the competition, it's already getting a bit of interest from computer giant Apple Inc. 

Its creator, freshman and York resident Alyssa McDevitt, said after the event that she had the idea in mind when she attended Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco last June. She'd won a scholarship to attend the event for free, and was so inspired afterward that she took "a complete shot in the dark" and emailed company CEO Tim Cook to tell him about her NoiseHub app. 

Soon after — in a dream scenario that would make any first-year computer science major envious — McDevitt got a reply from iTunes inventor and Vice President of Consumer Applications Jeff Robin, who told her that Cook himself had forwarded her email on to him."
