ST. PAUL, MN—Rep. Anna Wills, R-Apple Valley, is encouraging high school juniors to consider applying for the Minnesota House of Representatives High School Page Program. The week-long program is open to all Minnesota high school students in their junior year whether they are in public school, private school, or are home schooled; and is a unique opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of state government and Minnesota's legislative process.
Participants will assist members and staff during House floor sessions, participate in a mock committee hearing, and meet with legislators, constitutional officers, media, lobbyists, and members of the judiciary.
"Minnesota's Page Program is one of the best in the nation, and a great opportunity for students to get an up-close look at state government and participate in the legislative process," Wills said. "I hope schools, parents, and teachers will encourage applications for this program."
Applications must be received by close of business on December 4, 2015. 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.
