Legislative Page Program Accepting Applications

page ballard west woodlandEvery year, students ages 14 to 16 come from all over the state to serve as legislative pages in the House of Representatives. The Page Program is a great opportunity for youth to learn how our state government works, and gain hands-on experience with the ins and outs of the legislative process – it can even inspire them to become more involved in our democracy!

While the Page Program is free, and students receive a small stipend for their work each day, requirements like transportation to the Capitol and the costs of living in Olympia for a week have kept students from the 36th district from participating in previous years. Fortunately, the legislature created a scholarship program in 2016 to help offset those costs!

If this is something your teen might be interested in, go to the Page Program website to learn more, fill out an application, and get information on how to apply for the Gina Grant Bull Scholarship.
