Page program applicants sought

Hoosier students between the ages of 13 and 18 may apply for the Indiana House Page Program.

The program offers those students a chance to visit the Statehouse and see a full day of legislative activity.

Pages have the opportunity to tour locations like Gov. Mike Pence’s office, the Indiana Supreme Court and both the House and Senate chambers to list a few, according to a news release from state District 65 Rep. Eric Koch, R-Bedford.

Pages also have the opportunity to observe floor sessions and committee meetings and help legislative staff members. Students who serve as pages are excused from school for the day and are responsible for their own transportation to and from the Statehouse.

With spots filling up fast, students who are interested in the program are encouraged to schedule their visit quickly. Students are asked to include two separate dates to visit. Those dates should be between the first weeks of January through April. Recommended days to serve include Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays when the House is in session. There are no pages Fridays.

For information or to sign up, visit in.gov/legislative/house_republicans/off_cms/page or call 800-382-9841.
