Teen Girl Wins $50,000 And National Texting Championship Title

June 17, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – A fifteen year old girl from Des Moines, Iowa has won the L.G National Texting Competition in New York City.

Kate Moore, who has an incredible 500 a day average for texts, won the grueling competition, which included such tests of texting savvy as running an obstacle course while posting messages, ignoring trash talking actors dressed as various emoticons while texting tongue twisters, and seeing how fast popular phrases could be zinged from her fingertips.

In the end, Moore beat out 250,000 other contestants, and was named the US champion.

But by the, the best part of this story was a text interview she did with CNN:
