We look forward to welcoming House Pages for the 2024 session!
In order to serve as a House Page, participants must:
- Have parent or guardian's permission
- Receive a recommendation from a teacher and principal
- Be at least 14 years of age and have not reached your 17th birthday
If you are selected, you will receive a welcome letter, informational packet, as well as an email addressing everything you need to know about serving as a House Page. The packet and email 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. 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 accommodate a request to reschedule.
The House 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.
