Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

It was a fierce competition Tuesday morning at Kostoryz Elementary, where a spelling bee was taking place.

Fourth-grader Caitlin Hernandez won the bee after a couple of long rounds, but it was not easy getting to the top. She said that she studied for more than two weeks, prepping for the tough competition.

"It feels really good because I am the first kid in my whole family to win one," Hernandez said, adding that it is something she will remember forever.

Kiii Morning Co-anchor Jane Monreal served as a judge in the contest.

By the way, the winning word was "incredible."
