Deadline Nov. 6 for Enzi page applications
Oct 5, 2012 - Staff
Washington, D.C. -- U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi is encouraging Wyoming juniors in high school to apply to be a Senate page for the spring session in Washington, D.C.
The deadline for spring applications is Nov. 6.
"The page program allows students to have a front row seat during debates in 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 appropriate people on the Senate floor.
Pages attend classes at the Senate Page School until 9:45 a.m., and then work until 4 p.m. or until the Senate adjourns for the day. The Senate Page School provides the necessary requisites for a junior year course of study.
