Encourages participation in House page program

To the Editor:
Applications for the 2018 Minnesota House of Representatives High School Page Program have now been mailed to all of our local high schools; all juniors are eligible to apply.
Throughout the week-long program, pages will assist state representatives and staff in the House Chamber during session, observe how committees are conducted, meet individually with their local state representative, and learn how legislation moves through the political process. This program also gives students the opportunity to meet with constitutional officers, members of the judiciary, lobbyists, and members of the media.
To apply, visit: www.house.leg.
state.mn.us/edprog/app.pdf, or if you have any questions, call the Minnesota House Sergeant’s Office at 651-296-7452. An application must be postmarked no later than Dec. 1 to ensure its arrival on time for the selection process. Before returning the application, it must include a parent’s or guardian’s signature and approval from a school counselor, civics teacher, or principal. Chosen applicants will be notified by the end of December.
Serving as a high school page is an experience that will last a lifetime. I encourage any high school junior with an interest in the political process to apply.
