The Minnesota House of Representatives Page Program is taking applications for the 2012 legislative session. The Page Program is open to high school juniors across Minnesota. If you are the parent of or know a student who would be interested in seeing the Legislature work up close, please pass along this information to them.
Successful applicants will be invited to come to the Capitol for a week during the 2012 legislative session that begins January 24. During their week at the Capitol, Pages will work in House committee hearings and House Floor sessions as well as meet with legislators and legislative leaders to talk about the experience of serving in the Legislature.
Taking part in the House page program is a great way to see how government works. I encourage everyone interested in applying. I look forward to meeting Pages during the 2012 session!
