STATEHOUSE (Jan. 7, 2020) – State Rep. Alan Morrison (R-Brazil) encourages Hoosier students interested in state government to participate in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2020 legislative session. 

According to Morrison, 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.

“The page program is dedicated to teaching today’s youth about Indiana’s legislative process and encourages them to be civically engaged in their communities,” Morrison said. “This program is not only a great learning experience for students, but also offers an inside look at our state Capitol.”

Morrison 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.
