Sen. Phil Fortunato, R-Auburn, invites local middle and high school students between the ages of 14 and 16 to apply for a paid, week-long Senate page position during the 2018 legislative session that begins today, Jan. 8.

“The State Senate page program offers a great opportunity for students who desire to learn more about the state Legislature,” Fortunato said. “The program gives students the chance to take part in the legislative process while observing the Legislature and other branches of state government in action.”

During their assigned week at the Capitol in Olympia, pages will attend classes in “page school” to learn about parliamentary procedure and the legislative process. They will also assist legislators by delivering important messages to and from the Senate chamber and senators’ offices, learn from guest speakers, explore the Capitol Campus, hold mock public hearings and draft mock legislation.

Students interested in serving in the Senate page program should visit leg.wa.gov.
