Rick Martinez/Townsquare Media Grand Rapids

While those record snows and cold temperatures might be soon leaving us, they're leaving behind one of Michigan's worst pothole seasons ever.

Help point out the prodigious wheel rim-rattlers out there in greater Grand Rapids and across West Michigan. Take a photo of the most dastardly pothole you come across and enter it in West Michigan's Worst Pothole Contest, sponsored by Schneider Tire Outlet, Inc of Marne.

The contest runs through March 31.

The individual taking the photo of the pothole judged the worst in West Michigan wins $500 in cash.

 

 

To officially enter the contest, fill out the entry form for West Michigan's Worst Pothole Contest and upload your photo with the form by noon EST March 31, 2014.

In conjunction with West Michigan's Worst Pothole Contest, Schneider Tire is offering a drawing giving away a $500 package in tires. To enter Schneider Tire's Tire Package Giveaway, like Schneider Tire's Facebook page by noon EST March 31. That giveaway is separate from the West Michigan's Worst Pothole Contest.

So, get out and take some pothole photos! (And be a good citizen and report those potholes to your local road commission or highway department!)

Schneider Tire Outlet, located at 1454 Franklin St. in Marne and just off I-96 at the 16th Avenue exit, has been serving West Michigan since 1967.
