Sullivan's Foods employee Jenna Peterson bags a variety of groceries Wednesday evening at the Best Bagger Contest, sponsored by Sullivan's Foods along with the Illinois Food Retailers and the National Grocers Association. Peterson competed against other Princeton Sullivan's Foods employees to win the local title. She will now advance to a competition against other Sullivan's Foods stores on Tuesday. The winner of that event will compete in the Illinois Contest at Tinley Park, where the winner of that contest will compete nationally in Las Vegas, Nev., in February. Peterson won $100 for the win on Wednesday and could compete in Las Vegas for $10,000. The baggers are judged on speed, distribution of weight between bags, proper bag building technique, as well as style, attitude and appearance. Refreshments were served at the local store for spectators and shoppers.
