Senator puts out call for Honorary Page program

Sen. Rebecca Millett (D-Cape Elizabeth) would like to invite local schools and students to the Senate Honorary Page program at the statehouse 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.

“It’s wonderful to watch Maine’s youth directly participate in our democracy and learn about our legislative process,” said Millett in a press release. “I can only hope that it sparks a belief in the value of public service and the thought of possibly serving someday.”

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

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

For more information or to schedule a visit, contact Millett at 287-1515 or senrebeccamillett@gmail.com.
