Teen wins 25,000 dollars in text-messaging contest

Thirteen-year-old Morgan Pozgar, of Pennsylvania, was named LG National Texting champion on Saturday after she typed "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" from "Mary Poppins" in 15 seconds.

"I'm going to go shopping and buy lots of clothes," the teen said after winning her $25,000 (18,374 EUR) prize from the electronics company LG.

Morgan defeated nearly 200 other competitors to become the East Coast champion and then beat West Coast champion Eli Tirosh, 21, of Los Angeles.

Morgan estimated that she sends more than 8,000 text messages a month to her friends and family.
