If you have a teenager in your house, more than likely, you've been forced into the digital world.

From iPad's to Skyping, most teens have become obsessed with electronic communication, and it's most obvious in their need to constantly text friends.

Seventeen-year-old Michael Zhang recently used his love for texting to win U.S. Cellular's Speed Text Tournament.

The contest involved more than 11,000 people from all over the country.

Zhang's nimble fingers won him the title of Fastest Texter in America and a check for $10,000.

"I never expected to win at all. It was just something I did for fun," he said. I've only been texting for a year and a half or so, and I didn't think I'd be that good at it."

Zhang said he planned to use his prize money to help pay his college tuition.
