Get Paid $1,000 to Play Cornhole With Your Friends

Spring is coming, which means it’s time to put away the winter coat, get out in the sunlight, and maybe play some cornhole. You might just get paid for it, too.

This simple lawn game involves players tossing corn kernel-filled bags to opposing platforms with holes on one end. Tosses are awarded points for each throw, depending on how close the bag gets to the hole.

Even though it sounds kind of old fashioned, the game has become increasingly popular recently. You can make your own or even buy a portable game to take to a park, the beach, or your friend’s backyard barbecue.

Now, My TruGreen Lawn is looking for the perfect cornhole player to have a little fun and get paid while they do it. The company is offering $1,000 to a person to play the game and write about their experiences.
