New year, new opportunities: Indiana Page Program

I am proud to announce the House Page Program is now accepting applications for the 2016 legislative session. This is a unique educational experience, and I would encourage our local students to apply.

The House Page Program is open for students ages 13 to 18 to visit Indiana’s Capitol for a day and see the legislative process firsthand. Students who serve as pages are excused from school for the day and will get a behind the scenes look at how their state government works.

House pages tour the governor’s office, the Indiana Supreme Court, and the House and Senate Chambers. They will also have the opportunity to join me during session and assist my legislative staff.

Being able to see and experience the Statehouse and its immense size, grand rotunda and the buzz that fills its hallways during a day of session.
This experience allows for the pages to learn the ins- and-outs of the General Assembly. The Indiana Statehouse is one of a rare few in the country to house all three branches of government- the executive, judicial and legislative.

While pages are responsible for their own transportation to and from the Statehouse, I assure you, this is a trip worth making. If you are interested in applying to the program, please visit www.indianahouserepublicans.com/page-program/.
