Brianna won the competition against an initial pool of 500,000 contestants, competing in events such as Text Attack, Blind Texting, Text Blitz and Do U Spk Txt. All the contestants used LG Ally devices, copying phrases and sentences as they appeared on the screens over head.
New for 2010, the competition also included a category for parents and caregivers, who won their trip to the New York competition by playing online qualifiers at LG's Championship Facebook page. The category was added in response to survey findings that 41% of parents feel that texting makes them more connected to their teens.
In the end, Brianna won by typing the following phrase in only 60 seconds: "Old McDonald had a farm, Ei, ei, oh! And on this farm he had a champ. W/a txtr here, and BFF there. Here a text, there a text, erywhere a text-text!" How fast can you do it?
