Katy Perry gives gift to Verrado High student, Lakewood wins contest
But it was one Valley student who really won big.
Lakewood beat four other finalists, among them was Verrado High School in Buckeye, Ariz.
Verrado High submitted a 2-minute video that told a story of Megan, a student with Down syndrome, whose friends helped her make the cheerleading team.
Perry was seemingly moved by Verrado's message and wants to fly Megan and her friends out to be her date at a special event.
"I just want to celebrate her and hear her roar in person," she said. "Megan, thank you so much. I love you. I love your spirit. You have really inspired me."
