Information for Teachers and Counselors, and Administrators


The Minnesota High School Page Program offers students a unique educational opportunity in which the Capitol will become their classroom and lessons will come to life. During every program week, students participate in a wide variety of activities; each designed to further their understanding of the legislative process and state government. Some of these activities include:

  • Individual meetings with state representatives allowing students to discuss the issues that matter most to them, to their families, schools, and communities.
  • Experiencing the legislative process firsthand by assisting members during legislative sessions.
  • Preparing for, and participating in, a mock committee meeting. This activity develops students' research, cooperative, and communication skills while acquainting them with a complicated and controversial issue confronting our state.
  • Providing students with the opportunity to meet with House leadership and staff, constitutional officers, members of the judiciary, lobbyists, and members of the media.

We strongly encourage social studies teachers, counselors, and administrators to enthusiastically promote the High School Page Program in their schools. A diverse and distinguished applicant pool is a crucial aspect of the program's continued success. By advocating for the program in the classroom, in daily announcements, and in conversations with students, you not only ensure your students are aware of this invaluable opportunity, but you will also contribute to the continued success of the High School Page Program. Please accept our thanks for all you have done and continue to do ensuring the High School Page Program remains a rewarding and meaningful experience for Minnesota students.
