With the Legislature set to reconvene in January, Sen. Nate Libby, D-Lewiston, 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.

“Serving as an Honorary Page is a great way for students who excel in the classroom to take a day off from school to get firsthand knowledge of their state government,” said Sen. Libby. “I hope they leave the State House inspired towards a career in public service and maybe even to run for office someday.”

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.
