AUGUSTA — With the Legislature back in session, Sen. Justin Chenette, D-Saco, reminds 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 Maine’s legislative process, but to be a part of it. Students from third grade through high school are encouraged to participate.

“I invite students to get involved in politics and the governmental process by being an Honorary Page,” said Sen. Chenette. “Learning about how our State Legislature works is a useful tool and will hopefully encourage our young people to become more involved in the political process.”

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

Sen. Chenette sends a personal invitation to students who make Honor Roll.

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