U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is bringing one of her youngest campaign supporters to President Obama's State of the Union address.

Warren praised 11-year-old Cambridge resident Zev Dickstein as an example of the impact young people can have on their communities.

The Cambridge Street Upper School sixth-grader was 9 when he began working on Warren's 2012 Senate campaign and said the experience propelled him into politics.

Warren isn't the only member of the Massachusetts delegation attending the speech with a guest.

U.S. Rep. Niki Tsongas is bringing the new mayor of Lawrence, Daniel Rivera, and U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy has invited Jennifer Walsh, a Milford High School teacher who was named North America Special Olympics' 2013 Coach of the Year.
