Caleb Wassmer admits, it's easier to spell his favorite word, Czechoslovakia, on paper than it is out loud. Especially with the pressure of a news camera rolling just a few feet away.
Caleb is a 6th grader at North Elementary School in Poseyville. He's one of eight students from the school who will be aiming for spelling perfection Thursday night at the annual Spell Bowl competition at Central High School.
“I know I’m gonna do good, but I don’t know how it’s going to turn out,” Caleb said.
