STATEHOUSE- State Rep. Kathy Heuer (R-Columbia City) is encouraging local students to apply for the Statehouse Page Program. The Indiana House of Representatives offers the chance for students between the ages of 13 and 18 to visit the Statehouse and get a firsthand experience of what a full day is like involving legislative activity.
"Educating students on how our state legislature works is extremely important, and this opportunity gives students the chance to tour the statehouse, see where the Governor works and observe floor sessions of the House, Senate and Supreme Court chambers."
Pages will have the opportunity to assist Rep. Heuer with her daily activities and duties during their visit as well.
Pages who choose to take advantage of this program will have an excused day of absence from their school. Pages will be responsible for finding their means of transportation both to and from the Statehouse.
Availability fills up fast, so interested students are encouraged to apply as quickly as possible.
Those students interested in serving as a page for the House of Representatives should go to http://www.in.gov/legislative/house_republicans/page.html. Please have the first and second choice dates ready, and provide the student's name, address, age, home phone number and school.
