Student Page Program
Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) is accepting applications from high school seniors interested in participating in the Maryland General Assembly Student Page Program. Each year, CCPS selects three high school seniors and one alternate to represent the school system in the program.
The Maryland General Assembly Student Page Program for Maryland High School Seniors is a prestigious opportunity for students who are enthused about government and want to experience the legislative process. Student Pages spend two nonconsecutive weeks working with the General Assembly during their legislative session in Annapolis. The session runs annually from January to April. Pages serve one week during the first seven weeks of the session, and the second week during the last six weeks.
This is a non-patronage program and selection is based on the student’s merit. Pages receive a $55 stipend for each day worked
Interested students must meet the following qualifications:
- Reside in Maryland and attend a Maryland public or non-public high school;
- Be registered as a high school senior and be at least 16 years old;
- Have or obtain a social security number;
- Exhibit an interest in government and history;
- Have an average or above average scholastic record, and a record of good conduct;
- Be reliable and courteous.
- Have parental or guardian permission and signature to participate.
Students must apply for program consideration by completing an official application, and an essay explaining their interest and qualifications for the program. These forms can be obtained from the county coordinator by email at email@example.com or by phone at 301-934-7389.
Both of these completed documents must be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 4, 2023.
A panel of CCPS staff will review applications and essays, and hold interviews for the program on Wednesday, October 11 by Zoom. Candidates will receive further information about their interviews after all applications and essays have been received by the deadline.
Students who are selected to participate will be notified in November 2023 by the President and Speaker of the Maryland General Assembly.
