U.S. Congressman Paul C. Broun, M.D. (GA-10) today announced that he will sponsor one student to serve in the Spring 2011 Congressional Page Program. Pages are students, who in their junior year of high school, are hired to serve as support staff for the U.S. House of Representatives. They will live, work and study in Washington, D.C., for the session, which begins on Monday, January 24, 2011, and concludes on Friday, May 27, 2011.
"I invite eligible students to take advantage of this rare and exciting opportunity to serve as a Congressional Page," said Broun. "The Page Program is unlike any other, providing high school students with an exceptional educational experience while allowing them to be an important part of the legislative process."
To be qualified to serve as a Republican Page, applicants must: 1) be a citizen of the United States of America; 2) reside in the state the nominating Member of Congress represents; 3) be at least 16 years of age, but not yet 18 years of age; 4) be in, or entering, the 11th Grade (summer applicants may be entering or concluding 11th grade); 5) have a cumulative grade point average of a "B" (3.0) or better in the five major subject areas; and 6) have health insurance.
