Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi encourages Wyoming high school students to apply for one of the summer page sessions in Washington, D.C.
The deadline for applications is March 10.
"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 in the Capitol. Other duties include preparing the Senate chamber for sessions, and carrying bills and amendments to the desk. The summer sessions include a Field Studies Program which provides additional educational and cultural opportunities.
Summer Page eligibility is limited to students who have completed at least their sophomore year and will be 16 or 17 years old on or before June 10 for the first summer session and July 8 for the second session. Applicants must have a minimum grade point average of 3.0. Priority is given to Wyoming residents.
Pages live in Webster Hall located near the Capitol and receive a stipend to cover the cost of the residence, breakfast and dinner each day.
The 1st summer session runs from June 11 – June 29. The 2nd summer session runs from July 9 – August 3. Applications and additional information can be found on www.enzi.senate.gov. Further questions can be directed to Dianne Kirkbride in Senator Enzi’s Cheyenne office at 307-772-2477 or Dianne_Kirkbride@enzi.senate.gov.
