ST. PAUL, MN—Rep. 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 students in their junior year whether they attend public school, private school or home school. This program offers 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 and participate in a mock committee hearing, as well as meet with legislators, constitutional officers, members of the judiciary, lobbyists, and members of the press.
"The High School Page Program offers Eden Prairie juniors a unique opportunity to experience the legislative process first hand and learn more about the inner workings of Minnesota state government," said Rep. Loon. "I was fortunate enough to be a high school page and it sparked my lifelong interest in civic engagement. I highly encourage students to apply for this program because it is an invaluable experience and offers the opportunity to develop important leadership skills."
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.
More details and application information can be found on the House of Representatives website by visiting www.house.mn and searching "page program" in the search bar. You can also contact Andrew Olson, Assistant Sergeant at Arms at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
