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. Wendy McNamara (R-Evansville).

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

“I always enjoy the opportunity to spend time with students from our district and I appreciate their interest in learning more about our state government,” McNamara said. “Students who participate will assist with tasks on the House floor and be able to witness the legislative session up close.”

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