Vitaminwater will give you $100,000 if you ditch your phone for a year

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – What would you do with $100,000? 

Start counting the ways! 

$100,000 is up for grabs, and it could be yours — if you think you can ditch your phone for 365 days.

Vitaminwater is giving you the chance to win that very large prize between now and Jan. 7, 2019. 

If you’re up to the task, use the hashtag #nophoneforayear on Twitter or Instagram and describe what a year without a smartphone would look like. 

Some varying terms that may come to mind, in no order, include: fulfilling, relaxing, boring, exciting, quiet… the list goes on! 

The team over at vitaminwater will select one lucky winner based on originality and creativity, brand relevance, humor, and submission quality. 

Get this — to make sure there’s absolutely NO CHEATING, vitaminwater will conduct a lie detector test on the participant at the end of the 12-month period to make sure all the contest rules were followed. 

Pass and you get the jackpot. Fail and you end up with $0. 

Here’s a little caveat — vitaminwater will provide a Nokia 3310, which they say was the most popular phone in the year 2000, when the company first launched. 

Officials say it’s “a subtle nod to simpler days when the term ‘scrolling’ had not yet entered our lexicon.” 

If you aren’t familiar with the Nokia 3310, it can be used for simple tasks such as calling, texting, and you can even play a game of Snake! NO APPS! 

If you make it to 6 months and decides to give up, you’ll be able to bow out and claim a consolation prize of $10,000. 

Throw the towel in any time before the 6-month mark means you lose your chance at any cash prize. 

Think you can do it?
