This provides an opportunity for participants to witness first-hand how government works and participate in the process.

Pages may serve only one time in the House. Each representative is allotted five page appointments during the 2019 long session.

Page applications will be accepted until all weeks are full.

To learn more about the page program, visit the General Assembly website at http://www.ncleg.net/house/housepagesite/. Applications will be available online beginning Monday.

Interested students should contact his or her representative and request sponsorship, or the House member may initiate the sponsorship.

The student should complete the online application and save, print and sign it, as well as answer the essay question and attach a recent color photo.

The completed application should be submitted to the sponsoring member for a signature. The application then goes to the House page supervisor.

The speaker of the House appoints pages, who will be notified by mail during the first week in January.

For more information, contact Sue Frederick, House page supervisor, at 919-733-5701 or sue.frederick@ncleg.net.
