Wanted: Legislative Pages
Barbara was barred from becoming a Congressional Page when she was young because of her gender, so as a member of the West Virginia Legislature, she has always been excited to sponsor students for the Page program.
The West Virginia Legislature’s Page Program gives students, grades 6 thru 12, from West Virginia’s public and nonpublic schools an opportunity to serve as Pages in the West Virginia Legislature during the regular session. Pages serve members of the House and Senate in a nonpartisan capacity, within the Legislature. The Program accomplishes the following objectives:
Provide students with a meaningful and exciting experience in state government
Meet and work with other young people, their state representatives and those from different areas of the state
Give students firsthand learning experiences regarding the role of the legislators in the state
Have students share thoughts and ideas with legislators as lawmakers formulate and make decisions affecting every citizen.
And while in town, anyone visiting our beautiful state Capitol should try to schedule a tour and visit the state museum in the Culture Center.
