STATEHOUSE (Dec. 21, 2018) – State Rep. Dan Leonard (R-Huntington) encourages students who want to learn more about state government to participate in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2019 legislative session.

According to Leonard, students who are between the ages of 13 to 18 can spend a day at the Statehouse in Indianapolis helping staff and local legislators, touring government offices, and learning about the legislative process.

“Each session, we see many students take advantage of this opportunity,” Leonard said. “Some pages return year after year because the experience is so rewarding. It’s a day packed with activities and learning, starting when they first walk through the Statehouse doors until their afternoon departure.”

The 2019 legislative session begins Thursday, Jan. 3, and must conclude by April 30. Pages are able to select from available dates during that time period.

“Interested students should sign up soon as available spots typically begin to fill quickly,” Leonard said.

Leonard said student pages receive an excused absence from school and groups can participate together.
