Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi is encouraging rising Wyoming high school students to apply for one of the summer page sessions in Washington, DC.
The deadline for applications is March 31.
"The page program allows students to have a front row seat during debates of the U.S. Senate," Enzi said. "The program will provide experiences that participants will carry with them forever."
Page duties consist primarily of delivering correspondence and legislative material at the Capitol. Other duties include preparing the Senate chamber for sessions, and carrying bills and amendments to the desk.
Summer Page eligibility is limited to students who have completed their sophomore year and who will be 16 or 17 years old on or before the date of appointment. Applicants must have a minimum grade point average of 3.0.
Pages are paid on the basis of an annual salary of $25,605. Pages live in Webster Hall located near the Capitol. This residence is $600 per month and includes breakfast and dinner each day.
The 1st summer session runs from June 13 – July 1. The 2nd summer session runs from July 11 – August 5. To obtain the page application and for additional information, contact Christen Thompson in Enzi’s Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3424 or email her at Christen_Thompson@enzi.senate.gov.
