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

Posted: December 14, 2017 | Senator Dion

With the Legislature set to reconvene in January, Sen. Mark Dion, D-Portland, 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. All students from third grade through high school are encouraged to participate.

“Local students have a great opportunity to see their state government up close through this program,” said Sen. Dion. “I look forward to having Westbrook and Portland students visit the Senate for a day.”

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 will begin meeting on January 3 and is scheduled to end on April 18. Honorary pages are needed throughout the session, so scheduling is flexible.
