State Representative Tan Parker (R-Flower Mound) announced that his office is taking applications to participate in the Page For a Day program. 

A long standing tradition at the State Capitol, the program allows children between the ages of 8 and 18 to spend a day at the Capitol assisting the Members of the Texas House of Representatives while they work on the chamber floor. 

Participants have the unique opportunity to experience the legislative process up close, have their picture taken with Representative Parker, and are presented with a state flag recently flown over the Capitol.

Previous program participants sponsored by Rep. Parker also had the opportunity to meet various dignitaries happening to be visiting the State Capitol, such as Texas Rangers owner Nolan Ryan and Team Manager Ron Washington.

"It is a wonderful program," Parker stated.  "One of the highest honors of this office is to host the youth of our communities and to provide them with a once in a lifetime experience.  I look forward to having many children participate this session."

To be eligible, applicants must be a resident of House District 63 and between the ages of 8 and 18.
