iWRITE Literacy Organization and The Bryan Museum announced the 1,000 student winners (3rd-12th graders) whose writing or artwork will be published in I Am Texas, a 7 ft. book and attempt to publish the largest book in the world by kids, earning a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title.
This includes two middle school students from Rapoport Academy’s Quinn Middle School: Conrad Cunningham and Lincoln Kelley who submitted poetry as a part of their Texas History class with 7th Grade Teacher Kristi Pereira.
The publishing contest, sponsored by H-E-B, gave students the opportunity to enter short stories, poetry, and artwork that told their Texas story. 72 school districts and thousands of students across the state of Texas and beyond participated in the contest.
In addition to the students’ poetry being published, the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation awarded Mrs. Pereira’s classroom a $250 grant for books.
