MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee Public Schools hosted its spelling bee Saturday for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. Three children were crowned winners, and two happen to be from the same school!

The event was sponsored by TMJ4 News and took place at Vincent High School in Milwaukee.

The third-grade winner was 9-year-old Aiden Polivka. He goes to Lowell International school and his winning word was 'promise.'
