SAINT PAUL, MINN—Representative Jenifer Loon, R-Eden Prairie, is encouraging high school juniors to apply for the Minnesota House of Representatives High School Page Program. The week-long program is open to all Minnesota high school juniors whether they are in public school, private school, charter school or homeschool, and provides a unique opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of state government and the legislative process.
Participants will assist members and staff during House floor sessions, participate in a mock committee hearing, and meet with legislators, constitutional officers, members of the judiciary, lobbyists, and media.
“I would encourage Eden Prairie high school juniors interested in government and politics to apply for the Minnesota House High School Page Program. It’s an exceptional chance for students to see their government in action first-hand, meet with elected-officials, and take part in the legislative process,” said Rep. Loon. “I hope students in our community will consider applying!”
Applications must be postmarked or emailed by December 1, 2017. Participants are responsible for all personal costs associated with taking part in the page program, but will receive a small stipend to cover a portion of meals and, if applicable, cost of lodging.
You can contact Rep. Loon’s office or visit the Minnesota House of Representatives website at www.house.mn for more information on the program and how to apply.
