STATEHOUSE (Dec. 27, 2017) — Applications are open for students interested in participating in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2018 legislative session, according to State Rep. Jeff Ellington (R-Bloomington).

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

“I always look forward to days when pages visit during session,” Ellington said. “It is such a nice way to show students from our community how the legislative process works. They get a quick lesson on state government while providing much-needed help to our staff and members.”

To be a page, applicants should be between the ages of 13 and 18. Ellington 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.

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