Vancouver teen serves as House page for Rep. Vicki Kraft

Astoria Moore, a student at Union High School in Camas, served this week as a page in the Washington State House of Representatives. She was sponsored by Rep. Vicki Kraft, R-Vancouver.

Astoria's page duties included learning to navigate the many buildings around the Capitol, delivering messages and documents to legislators and staff, and assisting on the House floor. A few hours a day, she attended page school to learn and understand the operations and actions of the Legislature.

Each year, students from around the state apply to participate in the legislative page program. Students spent a week attending page school, learning the inner workings of state government and assisting legislators on the House floor. Pages earn $35 a day while serving in the program.

Astoria enjoys numerous activities, including soccer, varsity bowling, design, architecture, fashion, ukulele, and photography. She is the 16-year-old daughter of Jason and Krista Moore of Vancouver.

To become a page, applicants must have a legislative sponsor, be between the ages of 14 and 16, and obtain written permission from their parents and school. For more information about the House page program, go to: http://leg.wa.gov/House/Pages/HousePageProgram.aspx.
