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. Mike Speedy (R-Indianapolis).

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

“I encourage all students who are interested in social studies and current events to participate,” Speedy said. “The page program allows students to experience firsthand the legislative process of a bill becoming a law while spending the day at the Statehouse.”

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