MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire grocery baggers faced off against each other for a chance to compete for $10,000 at a national competition early next year.

The competition took place on Tuesday in Manchester with two rounds. WMUR-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2hvOSgL ) Hannaford supermarket employee Alysha Orrok was awarded first place in the competition.

Orrok says she’s worked at Hannaford for 10 years and is also a teacher.

She will be attending a national grocery bagging competition in Las Vegas in February to compete for a top prize of $10,000.

Organizers of the event also donated $2,000 to the New Hampshire food bank, alongside all of the groceries bagged during the competition.
