Cooper High School students recently put together a video for the GMA/Katy Perry 'Roar' contest. The video has had Abilene talking as well as a hot trending topic on Facebook and Twitter. It was a great piece of work and they were rewarded this morning when GMA announced live to the nation that Cooper was one of the 5 finalists in the contest.

That means that Cooper is now in the running to have Katy Perry show up at the school and perform on October 25th; her birthday, by the way. Cooper now joins students from Verrado High School from Buckeye, Arizona;  Lakewood Colorado High School;
Spanish Springs High School from Sparks, Nevada and one last high school which will be announced Friday morning. The winner will be announced on October 18th on Good Morning America.

GMA was on location at 5 am this morning getting ready for the live feed on the show. This is not only a treat for Cooper High School but for Abilene as well. They did a great job and we wish them luck in the finals!
