STATEHOUSE (Jan. 4, 2018) — Applications are open for students interested in participating in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2018 legislative session, according to State Rep. Cindy Kirchhofer (R-Beech Grove).

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

“It’s essential we encourage Hoosier students to become more engaged in our representative government,” Kirchhofer said. “The page program is a great opportunity for students to spend the day with state lawmakers while seeing firsthand how a bill becomes a law. Any student in our community interested in learning more about state government should apply soon.”

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