Oxygen, coffee, smartphone—these are the essentials we need to get through the day. But what if you were challenged to ditch your phone for a year in order to win a staggering $100,000?
Vitaminwater is launching a contest that’s asking one participant to do exactly that.
Here’s how to enter: Share a post on Twitter or Instagram explaining what you'd do instead of scrolling through social media posts. Make sure to include the hashtags #NoPhoneforaYear and #contest. The competition is open to all legal residents of the United States who are 18 or older and own and use a smartphone. According to Vitaminwater, the applications will be judged on originality, brand relevance, humor and other factors. The deadline is January 8.
Whoever is chosen will be issued an old-school, 1996-era mobile phone plus a yearlong contract. Borrowing your friend or family member's smartphone is not allowed—and don’t even think about using your tablet. (Those who require a smartphone for work need not apply.)
And no cheating—the company will administer a lie detector test to make sure you stick to the rules.
