MD General Assembly looking for HS students to serve on page program
ANNAPOLIS, Md. – The Maryland General Assembly is on the search for some high school students to serve as a page for this upcoming legislative session. Every year, the assembly hosts a page program where high school seniors get the opportunity to participate in and learn about the legislative process. Lawmakers tell 47 ABC that high schools in every county across the state can nominate one student hopefully be selected for the program where they’ll serve for two non-consecutive weeks with either the House of Delegates or State Senate. Now, this year students will take part in the program virtually compared to years past. But lawmakers say it’s still an experience of a lifetime for students who want to hopefully serve their state one day.
“During the normal year they’re on the floor or in the House and they’re assisting the various legislators with different needs. It is a great opportunity for them to see the process, how it works, get to meet a lot of people,” said Delegate Wayne Hartman (R-District 38C).
Student nomination packets are due by 4 o’clock Tuesday, November 10th. Officials add that each county high school is allowed to nominate one student who will attend a virtual selection meeting on Monday, November 16th.
