STATEHOUSE (Dec. 20, 2018) – State Rep. Jeff Ellington (R-Bloomington) encourages students who want to learn more about state government to participate in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2019 legislative session.

According to Ellington, those who are between the ages of 13 to 18 can spend a day at the Statehouse in Indianapolis helping staff and local legislators, touring government offices, and learning about the legislative process.

“Participating in the page program is a great way to get a firsthand look at how we make laws in Indiana,” Ellington said. “I always look forward to meeting the students from our community, and I encourage young people to participate in this unique learning experience.”

Ellington said student pages receive an excused absence from school and groups can participate together. For more information and to sign up, visit www.indianahouserepublicans.com/pageprogram or call 800-382-9841.

The 2019 legislative session begins Thursday, Jan. 3, and must conclude by April 30.
