STATEHOUSE (Dec. 22, 2017) — Applications are open for students interested in participating in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2018 legislative session, according to State Reps. Doug Miller (R-Elkhart) and Tim Wesco (R-Osceola).

Pages have an opportunity to join their representative during the legislative session and tour the governor’s office, the Indiana Supreme Court, and the House and Senate chambers.

“Participating in the page program is a unique opportunity for students who want to learn more about the legislative process,” Miller said. “I hope to host many students from our community at the Statehouse this upcoming session.”

To be a page, applicants should be between the ages of 13 and 18. Wesco said student pages receive an excused absence from school and groups can sign up to participate together.

“Experiencing how government operates firsthand is a unique learning opportunity,” Wesco said. “This is a great program and I encourage students in our community to apply.”

The 2018 legislative session begins Wednesday, Jan. 3, and must conclude by March 14. Miller said page positions fill quickly and encouraged participants to apply early online at www.indianahouserepublicans.com/pageprogram or by calling 800-382-9841.
