Sen. Bellows invites local students to Augusta for Honorary Page program

Posted: February 01, 2019 | Senator Bellows

AUGUSTA — With the Legislature back in session, Sen. Shenna Bellows, D-Manchester, is reminding local schools and students about the Senate Honorary Page program at the State House in Augusta.

The daylong program gives students a unique opportunity not only to observe the state’s legislative process, but to be a part of it. Students from third grade through high school are encouraged to participate.

“It is so important that today’s students visit the State House, because the decisions made here now will impact their lives for decades to come,” said Sen. Bellows. “I hope any student interested in civics, or public service more broadly, will join us in the Senate this year.”

Honorary pages help deliver messages, distribute documents within the Senate Chamber, interact with the senators and, most importantly, take part in a real-world, interactive legislative learning experience.

The Legislature is scheduled to be in session through late June. Honorary pages are needed throughout the session, so scheduling is flexible.

For more information or to schedule a visit, contact Sen. Bellows by phone at (207) 287-1515 or by at shenna.bellows@legislature.maine.gov.
