Spend a day at the Statehouse with Rep. Judy

STATEHOUSE (Jan. 6, 2017) — Applications are now open for students interested in participating in the Indiana House Page Program, according to State Rep. Christopher Judy (R-Fort Wayne).

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 policy issues.

“The House Page Program offers a firsthand experience for students to better understand the legislative process,” Judy said. “Participants can take away a positive learning experience they will cherish for years to come.”

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. Judy said student pages receive an excused absence from school.

Judy also said the 2017 session begins 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.
