During each week of the legislative session, approximately 35 students ages 14 to 16 from across the state serve as legislative pages.

Legislators sponsor the pages, who assist with the Legislature's work by making deliveries and performing other necessary tasks.

Pages spend part of each day attending Page School.

Page School is an opportunity for pages to learn about the Legislature's role, its process, and its participants.

The Page School is a joint program of the House and Senate and is housed in the Irv Newhouse Building on the Capitol Campus. The Legislature employs a certificated teacher with experience teaching civics and social studies and an assistant teacher. They bring a wealth of knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm to the Page School program.

The page application must be filled out during the same school year as the applicant would like to page, so someone wishing to page during the 2017 can apply now.

Pages need to be sponsored by a Representative or Senator, so if someone is interested in being a page, they can reach out to their legislator’s office right now. Applications are accepted until the page program fills up which is usually a few weeks into session.

Must be at least 14 years of age and have not reached your 17th birthday.

Lake Forest Park is in the 46th Legislative District:
