Minocqua fifth-grader in Final 10 at National Geographic Bee

A fifth-grader from Minocqua is one of 10 finalists at the National Geographic Bee in Washington.

Vansh Jain advanced to the final round Tuesday from an original group of 55 contestants.

He won the state competition last month in Madison.

And today, Vansh will compete for a $25,000 college scholarship, a trip to the Galapagos Islands, and more.

He's the second-youngest student at the national bee, which consists mainly of seventh- and eighth-graders.

Jeopardy host Alex Trebek will host today's final round.
