70 University of Virginia student groups competed in an 'app' and video game creation challenge through UVa's 'Open Grounds' project.
The competition focused on promoting healthy food, exercise and health awareness.
The winning team created an 'app' that scores food to help shoppers make better decisions in the grocery store.
A total of $25,000 were given out as prizes in the competition, and two students were offered internships based on their presentations.
'Open Grounds' is a UVa run program that allows students to work in an 'open' environment to "connect, collaborate, and create".
