MILWAUKEE -- He's been studying two hours a night to make Wisconsin Proud. 

Thomas Wright joined us Live on Daybreak, before he heads to Washington D.C. to compete with state champs across the country to become the National Geographic Bee Champion.

Last year Thomas finished in eighth place. This year his goal is to be number one.

We will all be keeping an eye on this. The 29th Annual competition will take place May 14 - 17.
