INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 4, 2016) – State Rep. Steve Davisson (R-Salem) is reaching out to Hoosier students to apply for the Indiana House Page Program.

Students 13 to 18 years old are offered the chance to visit the Statehouse and participate in a full day of legislative activity. In addition to visiting the Statehouse, pages have the opportunity to tour locations like the governor’s office, the Indiana Supreme Court, and the House and Senate chambers. Pages also have an opportunity to observe the legislative session as well as help staff members.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for young individuals to develop a better understanding of the legislative process at the state level,” Davisson said. “The Statehouse presents a unique environment that facilitates terrific learning experiences for students. From the legislators to the qualified staff, there is a wealth of knowledge and experiences that I would recommend every young student take full advantage of through paging.”

Davisson said students who are interested in the page program are encouraged to schedule their visit as soon as possible. Students who serve as pages are excused from school for the day and are responsible for their own transportation to and from the Statehouse. Session starts Jan. 5, and runs through the second week of March. Recommended days to serve include Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays when the House is in session.
