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

Posted: December 14, 2017 | Senator Millett

With the Legislature set to reconvene in January, Sen. Rebecca Millett, D-Cape Elizabeth, 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.

“The Honorary Page program is a great way for local students to supplement their classroom civics education,” said Sen. Millett. “I hope that Honorary Pages leave the State House inspired to continue in public service, whether as an elected official or in some other capacity.”

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.
