BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A sixth-grader from Grand Forks has won the North Dakota National Geographic State Bee.

Valley Middle School student Sean Ness won the state crown last Friday and will represent North Dakota in the national championship at the National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, D.C., in May.

State champions win $100 and an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington. The national champ will receive a $50,000 college scholarship, a lifetime membership in the Society and a trip to the Galápagos Islands.
