(CBS) — A Highland Park man is heading to Las Vegas next month, in hopes of becoming the best bagger in the country.

Jorge Mejia has been bagging groceries at Sunset Foods in Lake Forest for five years.

“I know a lot of customers and they love how I do my job,” he said.

Mejia won the Illinois Food Retailer Association’s best bagger challenge in October. Now he will be tested as one of 25 finalists at the national competition at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

“I am so excited, I am so happy to represent Sunset Foods and Illinois,” he said.

He says he will be judged on speed, proper bag building technique, weight distribution, style, attitude and appearance. He says he hopes to break his fasted bagging time of 46 seconds.

The winner of the competition receives $10,000.
