STATEHOUSE (Jan. 8, 2018) — Applications are open for students interested in participating in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2018 legislative session, according to State Rep. Bob Cherry (R-Greenfield).

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

“This program is a great opportunity for students who are interested in learning about state government and the lawmaking process,” Cherry said. “I encourage students in the community to apply.”

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

The 2018 legislative session began Wednesday, Jan. 3, and must conclude by March 14. Cherry said page positions fill quickly and encouraged participants to apply early online at www.indianahouserepublicans.com/pageprogram or by calling 800-382-9841.
