The Iowa Legislature is looking for high school students with a great attitude who want to work in a professional environment, learn about how laws are made, and meet other students from around the state of Iowa.

Students who are interested in serving as a legislative page during the legislative session should check with parents/guardians, then with school teachers and administrators.

Here are some comments from some of the previous pages:
  • “The hands on learning taught me more about government than I would have learned in one year of high school.”
  • “Everyone, including the legislators, clerks and other pages, were great to work with and learn from.”
  • “I plan to get involved with a campaign this summer as well as pay more attention to the issues in the future.”

  • “It surprised me how hilarious and normal the legislators are and how such different people can get along with each other.”
  • “Through my government class, I really thought I understood the legislative process. I was wrong.”
