The Washington State Senate has one of the best Page programs in the country and applications for 2024 just opened up! This is an exciting program which allows many young Washingtonians to get a closer look at the civic process and learn firsthand about state government and the Legislature.

Pages are students aged 14 through 16 who serve for one week during the legislative session. During that week, they spend time in Page School learning about the legislative process while also distributing materials throughout the Capitol campus, assisting legislators, working on the Senate floor, and presenting the colors at the opening of each day’s legislative session. Scholarships are available for pages from families with financial need, and housing with host families local to Olympia is available.

This is a unique opportunity, and I encourage young people to get involved! Learn more and get instructions for applying here, or you can email our office at for any additional information.
