Twelve-year-old Rishi Nair of Florida gave the correct answer to that final-round final question, becoming the winner of the 2016 National Geographic Bee, a title that comes with a $50,000 college scholarship, a trip to Alaska, and a lifetime membership in the National Geographic Society.

Saketh Jonnalagadda, 14, Massachusetts’ champion, came in second, winning a $25,000 scholarship.
