Jesse Zhang, of Missoula, is the new Montana state champion in the National Geographic Bee.

The 26th annual bee was held Friday in Billings with 100 students from across the state competing.

Zhang will represent Montana in the national competition in Washington, D.C., where he has a chance to win a $50,000 college scholarship.

Zhang tells KULR-TV that a game given to him by his parents is what initially got him interested in geography. The game made him look for different places across the world.

He says he practiced for nearly two months to get ready for the bee, and his hard work paid off.
