STATEHOUSE (Jan. 11, 2018) — Applications are open for students interested in participating in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2018 legislative session, according to State Rep. Sean Eberhart (R-Shelbyville).

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

“The page program is a great way for students to witness their state government in action,” Eberhart said. “Pages help me in the House Chamber, sit in on the legislative session and help staff in completing daily tasks.”

To be a page, applicants should be between the ages of 13 and 18. Eberhart 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. Eberhart said page positions fill quickly and encouraged participants to apply early online at www.indianahouserepublicans.com/pageprogram or by calling 800-382-9841.
