Congressman Paul Calls for Congressional Page Applicants

Washington , DC – Congressman Ron Paul is pleased to announce that he will be able to appoint a Congressional page this year.  

For more than 175 years, messengers known as pages have served the United States Congress.  Currently, approximately 100 young men and women from across the nation serve as pages at any given time. Pages must be high school juniors and at least 16 years of age.  Pages are appointed and sponsored by a Representative or Senator for one academic semester of the school year, or a summer session. The right to appoint pages rotates among Members pursuant to criteria set by the respective chamber leadership.   Academic standing is one of the most important criteria used in the final selection of pages.

To apply, please call Congressman Paul’s office at 202-225-2831 and ask for Jennifer.  Deadline to apply is October 27th.
