Lakshay proudly represented New Mexico at the National Geographic GeoBee in Washington, D.C., where he placed sixth. 

"This competition runs from fourth graders to eighth graders," he said. "This is the last year I could participate."

As he enters high school, he says he will take geography with him all the way back to D.C. 

"I want to be a public servant. Maybe go to Congress," Lakshay said. "Use my geographical skills to help people... especially our farmers."
