And the winners are...

The League of Chicago Theatres, Goodman Theatre, the University of Illinois at Chicago Department of Theatre and Music, and Chicago competition organizer Derrick Sanders have announced the winners of Chicago's August Wilson Monologue Competition. In first place is Morgan Brown (Southland College Prep), with Branndin Laramore (Gallery 37) in second place and John Carter (Chicago High School for the Arts) the third place winner. They will represent Chicago in the national competition on May 5 and 6 at Broadway's August Wilson Theatre.

Open to Chicago area high school students, the August Wilson Monologue Competition is a national competition that exposes students to the richness of 10-play Century Cycle, and it helps incorporate the plays into the standard high school curriculum. The top three monologues from among the Chicago contestants were awarded $500, $250 and $100 scholarships, respectively, and will receive a trip to New York City for the national finals.

The Chicago finals were held on March 11 at Goodman Theatre,
