The Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the 2020 Senate Page Program, said State Sen. Erin Houchin (R-Salem).
Through the full-day program, students in grades six through 12 can tour Indiana’s Statehouse, watch the legislative session and listen to debates, and assist staff with various tasks. Students also have the opportunity to meet with their state senators.
“I always enjoy meeting with Senate Pages, and I am encouraged to see students getting involved with the legislative process at such a young age,” said Houchin. “The Page Program is a great way to supplement what is learned in the classroom with real-life experience as bills are being debated and passed, and I highly encourage students in Senate District 47 to take advantage of this opportunity.”
The Senate Page Program will begin in January and run through early March. Positions fill quickly, so it is important to apply early. Pages are scheduled for Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays during the legislative session. They begin their day at 8:30 a.m. and are dismissed at 3:30 p.m. Groups serve together on Wednesdays. Serving as a page is considered an excused absence from school.
