To enter the contest, more than 2,000 students from 80 different school clubs competed with videos using Perry’s hit single “Roar.” The winner was announced Friday.

The concert by the chart-topping artist will be held at the school on Oct. 25, Katy Perry’s birthday.

Some students had actually wanted to move the concert to a larger venue so they could sell tickets to it as a fundraiser for flood victims, but that didn’t happen.
