Take a Month-long Break From Technology and You Could Win $25,000



In a world where many people work all day from their computers, communicate with friends and family via text and Face Time, and wind down with social media or their favorite streaming service, it’s hard to get away from our electronics. What if a $25,000 prize were on the line? Could you give up your electronics and Wi-Fi for 30 nights? That’s exactly what the spirits distributor Kahlúa is challenging people to do as part of its new Stir Up Your Routine campaign. One potentially lucky couple will be chosen to participate in the Kahlúa challenge, which begins on January 16 and ends on February 15, 2022. Taking into account that people work during the day, the couple will be expected to power down all of their screens and electronics from 6:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. At the end of the 30-night challenge, Kahlúa will send a polygraph examiner over to the couple's home to ask a series of questions, helping to confirm that they didn't succumb to the temptation of reaching for their phones or other electronics during offline hours. If successful, the couple will receive a $25,000 cash prize. If you and your significant other would like a shot at being chosen for this challenge, head to the Stir It Up Challenge webpage and upload a video telling Kahlúa why you're ready to mix things up with your evening routine. Submissions are open now through Jan. 2, 2022.
