LaGuardia Community College students have been acting up lately.

Julio Trinidad won the Kennedy Center’s American College Theater Festival northeast regional acting competition — try saying that five times fast.

The aspiring actor earned a $500 scholarship, an invitation to compete at the nationals in Dee Cee later this spring,  plus a $1,200 scholarship to the Commonwealth Shakespeare Co.’s Summer Intensive in Boston.

Trinidad was not the only LaGuardia student to make a splash at the competition.

John Cosentino made it to the final round and Toni Ryan was a semi-finalist.

Yuka Taga so impressed the judges with her reading of a one-woman student play, they created an award on the spot — Best Performance in a New Play — and presented it to her.
