K is for Katy Perry ‘Roar’ Contest – A to Z Blogging Challenge

K on Blogging A to Z

In October, 2013, singer Katy Perry held a contest on Good Morning America asking high school students to submit a video to go along with her song ‘Roar.’

 

The five finalists were shown on GMA. Students from Verrado High School in Buckeye, Arizona filmed their video around a cheerleader who has Down syndrome, 17-year-old Megan Squire.

Verrado didn’t win the contest, but Katy Perry gave Megan “the ultimate consolation prize,” – she took her to the American Music Awards.
