Information For Teachers and Counselors


Overview
The Minnesota High School Page Program offers students a unique opportunity to examine what they have learned in the classroom under real life circumstances. During every program week, students participate in a wide variety of activities; each designed to further their understanding of our state government and the legislative process. Some of these activities are:

  • Individual meetings with state representatives designed to allow students to discuss the issues that matter most to them.
  • Experiencing the legislative process firsthand by assisting members during legislative session.
  • Participating in a mock committee hearing designed to develop students' leadership skills and to inspire them to think critically about the issues confronting our state.
  • Providing students with the opportunity to meet with constitutional officers, members of the judiciary, lobbyists, and members of the media.

Promotion
We strongly encourage social studies teachers, counselors, and school administrators to aggressively promote the High School Page Program in their schools. The diversity and competitiveness of the applicant pool is a crucial aspect of the program's continued success. By advocating the program in the classroom, in daily announcements, and in conversations with students, you not only ensure your students are aware of this tremendous opportunity; but you will also contribute to the continued success of the High School Page Program. This will ensure the High School Page Program will remain a rewarding and meaningful experience for Minnesota students.


Eligibility
The Minnesota House of Representatives High School Page Program is open to all Minnesota high school students in their JUNIOR year, whether they attend public or private schools, or are home schooled.
