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. Shane Lindauer (R-Jasper).

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

“By participating in this program, young Hoosier students can meet and interact with public officials and state leaders,” Lindauer said.  “It’s an opportunity to witness what goes on in the legislature, and I strongly encourage students from our community to apply.”

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