Apr 24 2007 - 8:00am

A 13-year-old text wiz, Morgan Pozgar, of Pennsylvania, won the first annual LG National Texting championship [0] this past weekend, beating out Eli Tirosh (seen below in maroon robe), who was the LG West Coast Texting Champion. Apparently, the youngster beat out 200 other texters by typing "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" in a record 15 seconds. Pozgar, who says she averages "more than 8,000 text messages per month," also took home the grand prize of $25,000 reports the Washington Post [1]. She later told the AP [2], "I'm going to go shopping and buy lots of clothes." Hey, geek is chic, right?
