STATEHOUSE —State Representative Alan Morrison (R-Terre Haute) is encouraging Hoosier students to apply for the Indiana House Page Program. The program offers students 13 to 18 years old the chance to visit the Statehouse and see a full day of legislative activity.

“The House Page Program is an exciting opportunity for students to visit the Statehouse and see firsthand how the legislative process works,” said Rep. Morrison. “Those who participate in this incredible program are able to meet with their state representatives and experience a full day of legislative activity.”

In addition to visiting the Statehouse, pages have the opportunity to tour locations like Governor Pence’s office, the Indiana Supreme Court and both the House and Senate chambers to list a few. Pages also have the opportunity to observe floor sessions and committee meetings as well as help legislative staff members. Students who serve as pages are excused from school for the day and are responsible for their own transportation to and from the Statehouse.

“Every year, I look forward to meeting all the pages from our community, and I would highly encourage those interested to schedule their visit,” said Rep. Morrison.

With spots filling up fast, students who are interested in the Page Program are highly encouraged to schedule their visit quickly. Students are asked to include two separate dates to visit. Those dates should be between the first weeks of January through April. Recommended days to serve include Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays when the House is in session. There are no pages on Fridays
