MultiVu Video Feed: THE NATION?S FASTEST TEXTER TO BE CROWNED AT THE LG U.S. NATIONAL TEXTING CHAMPIONSHIP
NEW YORK, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics MobileComm U.S.A., Inc. (LG Mobile Phones) is looking for the quickest thumbs in the country. On Tuesday June 16, 2009, one person will be named the LG U.S. National Texting Champion, following in the footsteps of the winners from the past two years. The champion will receive $50,000 and bragging rights of a lifetime!
A National promotion to find 22 contestants, known as Text Titans, concluded in May. The winners of these various games received all expense paid trips to New York City where they will endure a grueling two-day marathon designed to push their texting skills to the absolute limit, testing their texting speed, dexterity, nerves, athleticism and knowledge.
The three players who accumulate the most points and stave off elimination of the challenges will participate in a mysterious final qualifying challenge (Final Round of Texting Event.) Ultimately, two finalists will emerge. This duo will compete in a speed texting mini tournament with the winner taking the LG U.S. National Texting Championship crown.
