AUGUSTA — With the legislature set to reconvene in January, Sen. Eloise Vitelli, D-Arrowsic, is reminding local schools and students about the Senate Honorary Page program at the state house in Augusta.

The daylong program gives students an 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 am happy to help set up a visit to the state house for any students looking to participate in the program,” said Vitelli. “It is a great chance for young people to get a glimpse of state government in person and learn more about the legislative process.”

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. Vitelli at 287-1515 or [email protected].
