In order to serves as a Senate Page you must meet the following requirements:
1. Parent/guardian permission
2. Recommendation from a teacher and your principal
3. Senate sponsor
4. Be at least 14 years of age and have not reached your 17th birthday
5. A Social Security card is required in order to receive the page stipend of $35 per day. If you do not have a Social Secuirty card, you are still able to participate without receiving the daily stipend.
The Senate receives hundreds of page applications each year. Though we would like to accept all who apply, there are limited openings. To maximize the opportunity for all, our policy allows that you page
ONE TIME ONLY in either the Senate or the House of Representatives. Your application will not be accepted if you have paged for either chamber in the past.
If you are selected, you will receive an acceptance letter and an information packet addressing everything you need to know about paging. The packet will arrive approximately four weeks before your start date and includes a page handbook, necessary forms, and information on housing, the page uniform, and orientation. Pages are scheduled up to two months ahead for the entire session. Please give careful consideration to the section of the application where you note weeks you cannot page. If you are selected and scheduled to page, we may not be able to accomodate a requst to rescheudle.
