REP. HANCOCK ENCOURAGES HIGH SCHOOL JUNIORS TO APPLY FOR HIGH SCHOOL PAGE PROGRAM

 


To the Editor,

With the beginning of the 2016 legislative session only months away, I strongly encourage any high school junior with an interest in the political process to consider becoming a page in the Minnesota House of Representatives High School Page Program.

Those selected to participate in this week-long program will participate in a wide variety of legislative activities, including individual meetings with state representatives allowing students to discuss the issues that matter most to them; assisting members during a legislative floor session; and giving students the opportunity to meet with constitutional officers, members of the judiciary, lobbyists, and members of the media.

An application must be postmarked no later than December 4 to ensure its arrival on time for the selection process. It must also include a parent’s or guardian’s signature and approval from a school counselor, civics teacher, or principal. Chosen applicants will be notified by the end of December.

To download an application, visit the following Minnesota House website: http://www.house.leg.state.mn.us/edprog/app.pdf, or if you have questions about the program, please call the Minnesota House’s Sergeant’s Office, at 651-296-7452.

Sincerely,

State Representative Dave Hancock

Bemidji
