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

Posted: December 08, 2017 | Senator Gratwick

AUGUSTA —With the Legislature set to reconvene in January, Sen. Geoff Gratwick, D-Bangor, 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.

“I welcome students from Bangor and Hermon that would like to join me for a day at the State House,” said Sen. Gratwick. “Being an honorary page can be a great window into the day-to-day workings of our state capital.”

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.

For more information or to schedule a visit, contact Sen. Gratwick by phone at (207) 287-1515 or by email at geoff.gratwick@legislature.maine.gov.
