  Encourage students to be pages during 2020 legislative session

The South Dakota Legislature is accepting applications from high school students interested in serving as pages during the 2020 legislative session.

Students must be juniors or seniors (seniors are given preference). They must be in good academic standing (3.0 GPA or higher is encouraged). Students must be sponsored by a legislator with the legislator’s signature. They must also have signed permission from their high school principal or superintendent and their parent or guardian.

Applicants must be able to serve during one of the following terms and may select a preference:

  • Term 1: Jan. 13-24
  • Term 2: Jan. 27-Feb. 7
  • Term 3: Feb. 10-21
  • Term 4: Feb. 24-March 5
  • Term 5: March 9-12
The preferred application deadline is Oct. 15. The final deadline is Nov. 12. Applications, including a cover letter, should be submitted to the Legislative Research Council, 500 E. Capitol Avenue, Pierre, SD 57501. More information on the Page Program is available on the Legislative Research Council’s Page Program webpage.

Attention, government teachers: If you would like a legislator from your district to speak to your government class about the legislative process or the Page Program, please contact the legislator or the Legislative Research Council at 605-773-3251. The LRC appreciates your continued support of this worthwhile opportunity for students.
