ST. LOUIS — Do you think you could go without your smartphone for a whole day? How about a whole year?
Vitamin Water is willing to bet you can’t do it. The company unveiled a challenge for 2019 with an award of $100,000 to a person who can go without their smartphone for 365 days.
Vitamin Water will choose one participant who will trade their smartphone for a 2000s-era calling-only phone. If the challenger makes it for six months, they get $10,000, and if they make it for the full year, they win $100,000
The entry period started Tuesday and ends Jan. 8 at 9:59 p.m. Mountain Time. You can enter up to four times.
Vitamin Water didn’t go into detail about how they’ll monitor the contest but said lie detector tests will be involved.
