A total of 72 students from 13 Clear Creek ISD schools were selected to be published in the “I Am Texas” book contest hosted by the iWRITE Literacy Organization and The Bryan Museum! Students chose to write a narrative, poem or create a piece of artwork for their entries that told their Texas story. Only 1,000 students from across Texas will now be published authors and illustrators in the Guinness World Record for the largest book in the world, standing at more than seven feet tall.

The "I Am Texas" Book Project

Representatives from the Guinness World Records™ officially decreed I Am Texas “the largest published book in the world” in Houston, Texas. An ode to Texas from the perspective of a child, the seven-foot book captures what the Lone Star State means to 1,000 young Texans in grades 3-12 from more than 80 school districts through short and long stories, poetry, and artwork.

The iWRITE Organization and The Bryan Museum, along with The New York Times bestselling author and illustrator team, Brad Meltzer, and Christopher Eliopoulos, creators of theOrdinary People Change the World Series, published I Am Texas with the help of Phillips 66, the official sponsor of its production. The team has dedicated the book to the students, their families, the faculty of Robb Elementary and the Uvalde community at the book signing and Guinness World Record announcement. The record was last set in 2007 in Brazil.
