The criteria of taking part includes that the participant be over 25 years of age, must have a valid driver's license and should be eligible to work in the US. The winner will be chosen on September 23, 2020.

Emphasising upon the need of this challenge, Tim Tincher, staff researcher said, "We know that staying connected has become more important than ever but that doesn't mean we're still prone to too much screen time".
