    Representatives Dan Fabian, R-Roseau, and Deb Kiel, R-Crookston, are encouraging high school juniors to apply for the Minnesota House of Representatives High School Page Program.

    The week-long program is open to all Minnesota high school juniors whether they are in public school, private school, charter school or homeschool, and provides a unique opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of state government and the legislative process.

     Participants will assist members and staff during House floor sessions, participate in a mock committee hearing, and meet with legislators, constitutional officers, members of the judiciary, lobbyists, and media.

     “I hope high school juniors in our area will apply for the High School Page Program, and come down to St. Paul to participate in this week-long experience,” said Rep. Fabian. “It’s a great opportunity to engage in the political process and learn more about how the Legislature operates.”

     “I would strongly encourage high school juniors from Northwest Minnesota to apply for this program. It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that will give you a first-hand look into the workings of Minnesota government and the Legislature. I would love to see students from our area participating during the 2018 legislative session!” said Rep. Kiel.

     Applications must be postmarked or emailed by December 1, 2017. Participants are responsible for all personal costs associated with taking part in the page program, but will receive a small stipend to cover a portion of meals and, if applicable, cost of lodging.

     You can contact Rep. Fabian or Rep. Kiel’s legislative office or visit the Minnesota House of Representatives website at www.house.mn for more information on the program and how to apply.
