4-H Page Day in Augusta (part of UMaine Day at the Legislature)
February 6, 2020, 8:30 am to 12:30 pm
University of Maine Day at the Legislature is a day where Cooperative Extension gets to highlight our awesome programs, including 4-H. Since legislators like to see 4-H members from their districts, 4-H’ers (age 13 or older) are encouraged to serve as Honorary Pages. The Maine 4-H program has up to 30 slots for Honorary Pages.
What does a page do? Legislators are constantly communicating and making decisions while in session and pages make that communication possible. Pages hand out information packets or place the paper information on their desks. Pages will also run communication and documents directly from legislator to legislator. Watch for more information coming soon!
We would love to have pages from all over the state represented. Slots, representing different state senators and representatives, will be filled in the order they are received. If the slot for your legislative district has been filled, your name will be added to a wait list in the order it is received.
4-H Honorary Pages will be in the capitol from 8:30 am to 3:00pm. A parent or 4-H volunteer must provide transportation and chaperoning.
If you would like to apply to be a 4-H page or have any questions about the process please contact the Waldo County Cooperative Extension office.
