Press release from Congressman Baron Hill
(Washington, D.C.) - Congressman Baron Hill today announced that his office is accepting applications for the Fall 2010 Congressional Page Program. The Congressional Page Program offers students the chance to serve as helpers for the U.S. House of Representatives, while attending school and living in Washington, D.C. Pages provide administrative support to various House offices by answering phones in the Member cloakrooms, delivering legislative materials, and preparing the House Floor for session.
Members of Congress are able to nominate a student to the program on a rotating basis. Congressman Hill may sponsor one student from Indiana’s 9th Congressional District to participate in the program this fall.
Students entering their sophomore or junior year of high school are eligible to apply. Applicants must be at least 16 years old, but no older than 17 by September 6, 2010. The program requires a minimum 3.0 GPA, and candidates should reside in the 9th district. While individual Members nominate students for the program, final review of application materials and decision about entry is done by the Speaker’s Office.
The application is due by Friday, July 23, 2010, and can be submitted by email or fax. To obtain an application or for more information about the program, contact Adrienne Watson in Congressman Hill’s D.C. office at 202-225-5315.
