Rep. Bob Dettmer Encourages Applications for High School Page Program

Monday, October 2, 2017

SAINT PAUL, MINN—Representative Bob Dettmer, R-Forest Lake, is 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.

“The High School Page Program is a wonderful opportunity for students to come down to the Capitol and learn more about how their government works,” said Rep. Dettmer. “It’s a fun and unique opportunity to take part in the legislative process, and I hope students in our community will apply.”

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. Dettmer’s office or visit the Minnesota House of Representatives website at for more information on the program and how to apply.
