The Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the 2022 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, listen to debates and help staff with age-appropriate tasks. Students also have the opportunity to meet with their state senator.
“The Senate Page Program is a great way for students to witness debates and votes during the legislative process,” Houchin said. “I always enjoy meeting with local students serving as pages, and I highly encourage young Hoosiers 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.
