    "Group" feels way too broad to define. Can we revise to "Most Text Messages Sent by 92 People in 5 Minutes"?

    Also, are you allowed to "cut and paste" the text? Are you allowed to keep texting the same person over and over?

    I'd love some color from an individual within the Monroe group.

      I think that the revised description is OK. The kids were allowed to cut and paste the message but were NOT allowed to text to the same person more than once. As far as color, do you mean comments from kids involved? If so, can I send along copy of two newspaper articles written about the event?
