seeks pages

State Rep. Kevin Van De Wege (D-Sequim) invites local youths to apply to serve as legislative pages in Olympia for the 2010 legislative session.

Pages' duties range from ceremonial tasks, such as presentation of flags, to operational duties, such as distributing material to legislators. Each page is sponsored by a legislator, usually from the district in which the page lives.

During their week in Olympia, pages earn a small stipend and attend classes to keep up with schoolwork and learn about the Legislature. To apply, students must be at least 14 but not yet 17. For details visit
