Maryland General Assembly Page Program

Since 1970, Maryland's high school seniors have had the opportunity to learn about the legislative process by serving as student pages in the Senate and the House of Delegates during the annual session of the Maryland General Assembly (MGA). Each year, 105 pages and 36 alternates are selected from across the State to represent their schools and counties in Annapolis. Each selected page will serve two nonconsecutive weeks in either the State Senate or the House of Delegates. The duties of the page revolve around the schedule of the chamber to which the page is assigned, and may include keeping bill books up-to-date, distributing materials on the floor to members, assisting visitors and delivering messages to members.

UPDATE 11/2/21: This year, the MGA will host student Pages virtually for the 2022 Legislative Session. The online activities of the Pages will revolve around online conversations with senators and delegates, and online participation in legislative sessions and committee hearings. This year they have added an optional in-person component in which each Page will be given the opportunity to sign-up for a day visit to the Annapolis Legislative campus. The optional day visit will allow Pages to tour the State House complex and experience serving in-person on the chamber floor. This opportunity is for current high school seniors.

For more information about the program, view the MGA Page flyer and the Student Information sheet.
