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.

This school year, the Maryland General Assembly (MGA) will host student Pages in-person for the 2023 Legislative Session. The activities of student Pages will revolve around the schedule of the chamber to which the page is assigned. Whenever their house (Senate or House of Delegates) is in session, Pages must be present. Duties include things like, keeping the members’ bill books up to date, distributing materials on the floor to the members, running errands, assisting visitors, and delivering messages to the members. After each day's session, Pages may be assigned additional work in the legislative chambers or committee rooms.

This opportunity is for current high school seniors.
