STATEHOUSE (Dec. 19, 2018) – State Reps. Woody Burton (R-Whiteland) and John Young (R-Franklin) encourage students who want to learn more about state government to participate in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2019 legislative session.

“Paging at the Statehouse provides students with another opportunity to learn about Indiana’s state government,” Burton said. “For those interested in social studies and current events, the page program is a great way to engage with your state and local leaders while also getting a firsthand look at the lawmaking process.”

According to Young, those who are between the ages of 13 to 18 can spend a day at the Statehouse in Indianapolis helping staff and local legislators, touring government offices, and learning about the legislative process.

“It is always exciting to meet young people from our community at the Statehouse,” Young said. “This is a unique opportunity to experience how a bill becomes a law and see what state legislators are working on. Because the program fills up quickly, interested students should apply early to reserve their spot.”

Student pages receive an excused absence from school and groups can participate together. For more information and to sign up, visit www.indianahouserepublicans.com/pageprogram or call 800-382-9841.

The 2019 legislative session begins Thursday, Jan. 3, and must conclude by April 30.
