“This is a rewarding opportunity for students to learn about how their state government works,” said Rep. Pond. “I encourage all who are interested from our community to take advantage of this program and participate in the legislative process.”
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 and Tuesdays are the best days to serve. There are no pages on Fridays. To sign up, visit www.in.gov/legislative/house_republicans/off_cms/page or call 1-800-382-9841.
