Company Offers $100K To Someone Who Can Last a Year Sans a Smartphone
Can any modern person living in this technology-obsessed world ever survive without a smartphone, not just for a day but for an entire year? Maybe not. But what if a company dangles an offer to do just that - go smartphone-less for 365 days in exchange for an award of $100,000? Maybe the dynamics would change, and there would be sure takers of the offer cum challenge.
Vitaminwater is confident enough to bet that no person can do it, that is why they unveiled a challenge for the incoming year to go without a smartphone for 365 days for a chance to win $100,000.
The company says the contest is now open to prospective participants. All they have to do for now is share on Instagram or Twitter the reason why they feel they are up to the challenge. Interested contestants may use the hashtags #NoPhoneForAYear and #contest.
After the entries are sent which started on December 11 and end on January 8, 2019, at 11:59 ET, the company will choose only one person to take the challenge.
The person chosen for the “no smartphone for a year” challenge will have to give up his or her smartphone for the duration of the contest. In turn, the company will give the participant an old call-only phone reminiscent of the 2000s era.
Vitaminwater also says that if the contestant survives not using a smartphone for six months, he or she will get $10,000, and if the challenge participant makes it all the way to a full year, he or she shall get the complete $100,000 prize.
The company did not yet get into details how they intend to fully monitor the contestant to ensure he or she doesn’t cheat and sneak in use of a smartphone through out the duration of the challenge. The only thing the company did make clear is that lie detector tests will be involved.
Interesting challenge indeed. Already, thousands are responding and expressing their interest to join the contest, with many saying that with no access to smart phones, they will get to spend more time with their loved ones, some even with their dogs. Others are looking at the $100,000 reward to take care of their medical bills of pay off student debts.
