Vitaminwater offering $100k in “no phone for a year” contest

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Vitaminwater wants to give someone $100,000, but only if they give up their smartphone.

The company is taking entries now for people who would be willing to give up their smart phone for one whole year.

The winner gets $10,000 if they make it six months.

The participant will receive a flip phone to make basic phone calls, and laptops are allowed.

But before the contestant receives the money, Vitaminwater will give that person a lie detector test to make sure they followed the rules.

The company says they want to encourage people to do something unique with their time.

To enter the contest, you need to submit a post on Twitter or Instagram including the hashtags #nophoneforayear and #contest, and outlining what you’d do if you couldn’t swipe or scroll for a year.

Entries will be accepted until January 8.
