Lakewood High School students donating $9,000 for disaster relief after winning Katy Perry concert

LAKEWOOD, Colo. - Lakewood High School students who won Katy Perry's lip-dub contest are donating more than $9,000 to help Coloradans affected by disasters, including September's floods.

Students at Lakewood High School will present a check to the American Red Cross during a rally Tuesday morning.

A video featuring more than 2,000 students lip-syncing to Perry's "Roar" won the school a free concert in October.

The Lakewood students raised money by selling T-shirts and collecting donations.

Now they hope other schools across the country will follow their example.

"We want to challenge all the high schools in America to raise $1,000," said Courtney Coddington, student body president.
