U.S. Senator Mike Enzi is encouraging High School Juniors to apply to be a Senate page in Washington, D.C. for the fall session.
In the U.S. Senate, there are 30 page positions, and one of those positions is reserved for Enzi to sponsor a student from Wyoming.
The applications deadline is June 27.
“Along with allowing students a front row seat during debates in the Senate, pages have the opportunity to explore the nation’s capital and interact with students from across the country. The program provides experiences that participants will carry with them forever,” said Senator Enzi.
Pages are important for day-to-day operations to the Senate.
Their duties consist of delivering correspondence and legislative material in the congressional complex.
Other duties include preparing the chamber for Senate sessions, carrying bills and amendments to the appropriate people on the Senate floor.
Pages attend classes until 9:45 A.M., and work until 4:00 P.M., or until the Senate adjourns. The Senate Page School provides requirements for a Junior year student.
Applicants must be rising Juniors in High School who are 16 or 17 years old by the date of appointment, and have a minimum grade point average of 3.0.
Pages will live in Webster Hall, and receive a stipend to cover the cost of residence. Breakfast and dinner are provided every day.
