House of Representatives

Capitol Dome with FlagsEach year, hundreds of students from across the State have the opportunity take part in the Oklahoma House of Representatives High School Page Program. Pages are assigned for one week, Monday through Thursday, during the legislative session beginning the first Monday in February through the last Friday in May.

Pages begin their duties on Monday morning with an orientation session to become familiar with the Capitol building and their duties for the week. Other mornings, Pages will hear a guest speaker or attend a meeting. Each day begins at 8 a.m. and ends at 4:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and 2:30 p.m. on Thursday.

Serving as a Page includes working in the House Chamber each day during session, running errands for the Representatives and House staff and taking part in the House Page Mock Legislature.

Hotel accommodations and chaperones are provided for students living outside of the Oklahoma City metro area. Hotel Pages are bused to and from the hotel every day. All Pages are responsible for their own lunch and dinner. A snack bar is located inside the Capitol for lunch purchases, or students may bring a lunch.

Pages are not permitted to leave the Capitol building during work hours and are closely supervised at all times.

The House Page Mock Legislature

Front of House Chambers

Tuesday evenings, House Pages participate in the House Page Mock Legislature program. The mock legislature is held in the House Chamber, 4th Floor of the State Capitol Building. Immediately following work that day, Pages are taken to a restaurant for dinner and then return to the Capitol for the mock legislature. Pages elect their own officers and the House staff guides them through the mock legislative process.

Parents are encouraged to attend and should park and enter on the west side of the Capitol. The Capitol Photographer will take photos during the event and all Pages will receive copies.
