STATEHOUSE (Jan. 6, 2017) – Applications are now open for students interested in participating in the Indiana House Page Program, according to State Rep. Mike Braun (R-Jasper).

While at the Statehouse, House pages spend the day touring the House and Senate chambers, the Indiana Supreme Court and governor’s office. Pages also observe the legislative session directly from the floor of the House, listening to debates on important policy issues.

“The House Page Program is a great way for students to see firsthand how laws are made in Indiana,” Braun said. “I strongly encourage students from southwest Indiana to apply and take part in this unique educational opportunity.”

Pages are also assigned age-appropriate tasks like delivering important messages and sorting files. To be a page, applicants should be between the ages of 13 and 18, which is typically grades 6-12. Braun said student pages receive an excused absence from school.

Braun also said the 2017 session began on Jan. 4, and page positions fill quickly. To apply, visit www.indianahouserepublicans.com/pageprogram or call 800-382-9841.

Those students who wish to page together should note that on their individual applications. House pages are scheduled for Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Large groups like Boys and Girls Scout Clubs may be scheduled to page on Wednesdays.
