(CNN) — A company wants to pay you $1,000 if you can leave your smartphone behind for a week.

Internet service provicer Frontier Communications just launched its flip phone challenge

They say it’s right in time for the 30th anniversary of the first folding phone.

To make up for all the high-tech you’ll lose, Frontier is sweetening the deal with a survival kit.

You’ll get a printed map, pocket phone book and some ’90s-era CDs.

They’re looking for tech geeks and smartphone addicts. Bonus points if you have an active social media presence.

To win, you’ll have to send a 100- to 200-word message about why you’re perfect for the experiment.

Frontier will choose only one winner.

The entry form is available now.
