STATEHOUSE (Jan. 3, 2018) — Applications are open for students interested in participating in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2018 legislative session, according to State Rep. Matt Lehman (R-Berne).
Pages have an opportunity to join Lehman 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 Hoosier students to learn about their elected officials and state government,” Lehman said. “Participants can to tour the Statehouse, watch session as it’s happening, and help out staff members with daily tasks. I hope to see many students from our community taking advantage of this unique opportunity.”
To be a page, applicants should be between the ages of 13 and 18. Lehman 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. Lehman said page positions fill quickly and encouraged participants to apply early online at www.indianahouserepublicans.com/pageprogram or by calling 800-382-9841.
