The Digital Detox Challenge: Win $2,400 for Staying Away From Your Screens

A company’s staff thought about the severe addiction of staying glued to screens that many of us have. But we can finally prove that we can live for a whole day without our smartphone, computer, tablet, and even TV. The best part of this challenge is that we’ll even get paid if we succeed.

According to CNN, Reviews.org offers a reward of $2,400 for those willing to stay away from their screens.

You have to be into tech and up for a challenge

The company was crystal clear on its website:

If you’ve got the desire to ditch your devices for a day but still need to get paid, this is the perfect opportunity for you.

Many of us wanted to win competitions, but we were too busy playing video games, writing on a forum, or coding something. That’s about the same thing Reviews.org also says. Also, the company says that the ideal candidate must be passionate about technology and up for a challenge.

The challengers will have to store their electronics in safes for 24 hours. They’ll also receive a $200 Amazon gift card to put together a ‘survival kit’ that doesn’t involve any tech. Until several decades ago, the world was doing pretty well without computers and smartphones. Someone can still survive with paper and a pencil for writing texts, with physical board games like Scrabble and Chess, and so on. Reviews.org even advises the potential challengers to use paints and brushes, a typewriter, and more.

If you’re willing to apply for the challenge, you’ll have to submit some personal info and a text of 100 words explaining why you’re the right man or woman for the task. Applications are available until March 26, and the YouTube page of Reviews.org will announce the winners three days later.
