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. Tom Washburne (R-Evansville).

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

“The page program is a great interactive educational experience for young Hoosier students,” Washburne said. “Having the opportunity to observe the legislative session directly from the House floor and assist representatives is a great way to learn about our state government.”

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