(AP) A teenager from Connecticut who sang songs from popular Broadway hits like "Newsies" and another from California who nailed the sassy tune "Raunchy" from the musical "110 in the Shade" have won top honors at the National High School Musical Theater Awards.


Sarah Lynn Marion, from Fullerton, Calif., was named best actress Monday, and Taylor Vargo from Norwich, Conn., got the best actor crown at the fifth annual competition.


Both top winners will receive a $10,000 scholarship award, capping a months-long winnowing process that began with 50,000 students from 1,000 schools. This year's contestants come from 20 states.


Sixty-two teens were invited to New York for the final contest and the chance to make their Broadway debuts at the Minskoff Theatre, the long-term home of "The Lion King."
