STATEHOUSE — State Rep. Tom Dermody (R-LaPorte) is encouraging local 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 one of the best ways to learn about the state legislative process,” said Rep. Dermody. “My previous pages continually tell me the experience was enjoyable, engaging and expanded their knowledgebase of how state government operates.”
Along with visiting the capitol building and touring such locations as the governor's office, the chambers of the Indiana House and Senate and the Indiana Supreme Court, pages get the chance to witness floor sessions and committee meetings and help staff members.

Students who serve as pages are excused from school for the day. Pages are responsible for their own transportation to and from the Statehouse.

Interested students are encouraged to schedule their visit quickly, as spots fill up fast. Pages are asked to include two different dates when they can come to the Statehouse between the first week in January through April. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays are the best days to serve, as those are the days that the House is in session. There are no pages on Fridays. To sign up, visit: www.in.gov/legislative/house_republicans/off_cms/page.html or call 1-800-382-9841.
