A team from Grand Rapids won $15,000 and the top prize at 'Code Michigan' for their 'SnowFi' app, which shows users where snowplows are, and what streets have been cleared.

Code developers from across the state competed at three Code Michigan events, held in Detroit, Newaygo, and Marquette last weekend. (10/3-10/5) Eric Buehler, Josh Hulst and Ryan Graffy, all from the Grand Rapids area, won the $5,000 first-place prize at the Newaygo competition, and nabbed the nabbed Code Michigan's overall grand prize of $10,000.

“It was great to be a part of Code Michigan and we’re ecstatic that we won,” Buehler told the Michigan Department of Technology, Management, and Budget website.

The team hopes the app will make winter commutes easier for Michigan residents. No timeline for its deployment has been released.
