We’ve got wind of a truly 21st century contest. If you can give up your smartphone for a year, VitaminWater will pay you $100000. Unfortunately we all can’t participate. They’re only going to chose one person. If you want to take a crack at it, you have to tag vitamin water in an Instagram or twitter post and use #nophoneforayear and #contest. They want you to also tell them what you will do while you are disconnected from your phone.
