Kids winners in Alberni reading promo

A 90 second television feature about an Alberni Home Hardware reading project airs on CTV Dec. 2.

Alberni Valley students are the winners in a Home Hardware contest that is getting Port Alberni some national television coverage.

Brandi Fraser, an employee at Home Hardware, submitted the story of the store’s 1,000-book reading challenge at Eighth Avenue School for the Home Hardware Home Town Stories competition held in the spring.

The story was selected as one of 20 finalists and a film crew visited the community this summer.

Now a 90 second feature has been broadcast during CTV News. The next broadcast of the story is Dec. 2 between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. The clip can also be viewed online at
