Twelve spellers from around the Crossroads are prepared to wage war over words for the chance to be crowned the 2012 Regional Spelling Bee Champion.
Each day, we'll feature, in all their glory, the co-champions from participating counties.
Today's co-champions are from Calhoun County - Shaughnessy Jean Howell and Blaine Matthew Schmidt, both from Travis Middle School.
The Regional Spelling Bee premieres at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Victoria College's Johnson Symposium, 2200 E. Red River St.
