STATEHOUSE (Dec. 28, 2017) — Applications are open for students interested in participating in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2018 legislative session, according to State Rep. Bruce Borders (R-Jasonville).

Pages have an opportunity to join Borders during the legislative session and tour the governor’s office, the Indiana Supreme Court, and the House and Senate chambers.

“I encourage students from our community to participate in this unique experience,” Borders said. “The page program is a great way for young people to take part in state government while learning about how laws are made in Indiana.”

To be a page, applicants should be between the ages of 13 and 18. Borders said student pages receive an excused absence from school, and groups can sign up to participate together.

The 2018 legislative session begins Wednesday, Jan. 3, and must conclude by March 14.

Borders said page positions fill quickly and encouraged participants to apply early online at www.indianahouserepublicans.com/pageprogram or by calling 800-382-9841.
