Washington, DC – Each semester, the leadership of the Democratic and Republican parties select Members of the U.S. House of Representatives by random lottery draw to nominate students for the House Page Program. Today,Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) announced that he won the lottery this year and now has the opportunity to nominate a student from the 29th Congressional District to be part of the Page Program during the fall of 2010.  

“The House Page Program is a great opportunity for students to come to Washington, DC, experiencing Congress in action and assisting with official House duties,” Rep. Schiff said.  “The Page Program is a tradition more than 200 years old, and I encourage all high school students in our community to apply.”

Among other things, House Pages deliver correspondence and legislative material throughout the Capitol Complex.  They also work within the Democratic and Republican cloakrooms taking messages and answering phones.

Applications can be found on Rep. Schiff’s website here.  Applications should be submitted to Rep. Schiff’s Pasadena office no later than July 30.  For more information, please contact Rep. Schiff’s Pasadena office at 626-304-2727.
