STATEHOUSE (Dec. 27, 2017) — Applications are open for students interested in participating in the 2018 Indiana House Page Program during the legislative session, according to State Rep. Ben Smaltz (R-Auburn).

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

“Being able to absorb the legislative experience is what makes this program so worthwhile to the students,” Smaltz said. “By the end of the day, students usually leave with a different perspective than when they walked through the Statehouse doors that morning.”

To be a page, applicants should be between the ages of 13 and 18. Smaltz said student pages receive an excused absence from school and groups can sign up to participate together.

The 2018 legislative session begins Wednesday, Jan. 3, and must conclude by March 14. Smaltz said page positions fill quickly and encouraged participants to apply early online at www.indianahouserepublicans.com/pageprogram or by calling 800-382-9841.
