Pop singer, Katy Perry enlisted the help of Good Morning America and created a contest for all high schools in the country. The contest was to create a video of your high school's 'Roaring' spirit, using Katy Perry's hot number song, "ROAR". All entries need to be entered by video and Katy Perry herself, was to announce the winner of her contest on Friday, October 18, 2013. That is today!
Entries were received from high schools all over the country and last week, Good Morning America would show one each day of the week to showcase the five finalists in the contest. Our own Lakewood High School in Lakewood, Colorado was one of the five finalists. Just to be a finalist is a great feat and an amazing show of school spirit.
Today, on Good Morning America, Katy Perry announced the winner of her 'ROAR' contest and the winner is... Lakewood High School! Katy Perry said that she loved how the video was all done in one single long shot and how all the clubs of the school were being shown and it felt as though not one student was left out. Congratulations to Lakewood High School!
What else to they receive as a prize? Just a special private concert with Katy Perry coming to their school to, of course, perform 'ROAR' on Katy's birthday, next Friday, October, 25! Well done Lakewood High School! You have an amazing 'ROAR'.
