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. Dave Wolkins (R-Warsaw).

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

“If a student has an interest in the workings of state government, or even thinks they might, I’d ask them to strongly consider this program,” Wolkins said. “Seeing all that goes on during a day at the Statehouse can be a valuable experience.”

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