TURN THE PAGES

One way for teenagers to learn about democracy is to work as a page in the Legislature in Olympia, as several from the Maple Valley, Covington and Black Diamond area did during the 2008 legislative session that ended in March. Pages, who deliver documents and participate in flag ceremonies while seeing state government in action, must be 14 to 16 years old, continue their school studies during the week they spend in Olympia, and be sponsored by a legislator. Information on becoming a page is available at http://www.leg.wa.gov/House/PageInternProgram and http://www.leg.wa.gov/Senate/Administration/PageProgram.
