Rep. Mary Franson, R-Alexandria, is encouraging high school juniors to apply for the Minnesota House of Representatives High School Page Program.

The week-long program allows Minnesota high school juniors to spend a week at the Legislature during session, holding mock-committee hearings, assisting legislators and staff during House floor sessions, and learning firsthand about how the state legislature works.

“This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is a chance to engage in the political process and learn more about how the Legislature operates," Franson said in a news release. "I would love to see students from our community participating during this upcoming session.”

The deadline to apply for the 2020 legislative session is Thursday, Nov. 21. For more information, visit
