STATEHOUSE (Jan. 16, 2020) – State Rep. Chris Judy (R-Fort Wayne) encourages Hoosier students interested in state government to participate in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2020 legislative session.

According to Judy, students ages 13 to 18 can spend a day at the Statehouse in Indianapolis assisting House legislators and staff, and touring the governor’s office, the Indiana Supreme Court and the House and Senate chambers. He said it is also an opportunity to witness the legislative process in person, including debates on various proposals for new laws.

“I truly appreciate sitting down and getting to know the pages from our community,” Judy said. “Students curious about state government will learn a lot at the Statehouse. The unique look at the legislative process builds on classroom learning, and many students share their experience with friends and family.”

Judy said student pages receive an excused absence from school and groups can participate together. Students are responsible for their own lunch expenses and transportation to and from the Statehouse. Opportunities to serve as a page include Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays during the legislative session, which concludes by March 14. For more information and to sign up, visit IndianaHouseRepublicans.com/PageProgram or call 800-382-9841.

With limited openings, students are encouraged to apply soon.
