Winners of the National Library and Information System authority’s (Nalis) Spot a Christmas Tree competition were presented with their prizes of product hampers donated by Nestle Trinidad.
The competition was held during Nalis’ 13th Annual Celebrity Tale-A-Thon – Christmas Edition, which premiered on December 19 on its Facebook page and YouTube channel and was subsequently shown on television. Viewers were invited to indicate the number of times the stylised Christmas tree appeared on the screen during the programme. Those who counted correctly or came close without going over were awarded prizes, Nalis said in a media release.
